September 1, 2016: Young Korean-Mayans play around in the #pool at the 90th birthday party of Joaquin Poot Lee, a second-generation relative.

In 1905, around 1,000 Koreans arrived in #Mexico aboard the SS Ilford. They alighted in Salina Cruz in the state of #Oaxaca , and then traveled by steamboat to Progreso, on the Yucatán Peninsula. The Koreans had departed an impoverished country and were promised future prosperity, but were destined instead to be indentured laborers—a form of bonded contract labor in which they were forced to work for low wages for four or five years.

The immigrants were set to work on henequen plantations, in harsh conditions. Henequen, a variety of agave plant used in rope making, generated vast revenues for Mexico. The immigrants (most of whom were men) worked side-by-side with local Mayans, often learning the Mayan language in preference to the Spanish of their masters, and many went on to marry local Mayan women. Most laborers expected to return to their homeland, but by 1910 Korea had been incorporated into the Japanese Empire, and so many decided to stay in Mexico. With the decline in demand for henequen after World War I, a number of Koreans went on to seek work elsewhere in Mexico and in Cuba. Second-generation Korean-Mexicans often lost their parents’ language and traditions. More recently, young people of Korean descent are proving eager to pick up again on their cultural heritage.

The 2017 Photo Contest (#WPPh2017 ) drew entries from around the world: 5,034 photographers from 125 countries submitted 80,408 images.
