An extensionism activity conducted in indigenous areas from the Mexican South East, mainly in the States of Chiapas and Quintana Roo, has been based on the methodology of participatory approach research. The main factor of evaluation has been the meeting of knowledge, starting from the fact that producers do account for an important, informal knowledge, which is going to be enriched with formal knowledge from technicians and scientists. In a dialectic manner, it is possible to obtain by this procedure an increase in productivity in systems of animal production of these villages and an improvement in the way of life of these producers. Two experiences have been considered in this document: the first includes agro-silvopastoril production in the Maya-Tzolzil region, whereas in the second experience backyard pig production by Maya women from Quintana Roo State has been exposed. Participatory research work in both experiences resulted to be a suitable method, since from one hand human groups involved were enhanced from the point of view of an increase in the standard way of life, and from the other hand, there was an enrichment of mind and knowledge of technicians working with farmers. Benefits from projects are mainly concerned to economic aspects, rescue of cultural, conceptual and educative elements by participants, and in therefore an improvement in quality of life, if animal production systems integrated to human feeding and nutrition is considered.
