Etymology

Campesino is a Spanish language term referring to a farmer or farmworker. A possible English language equivalent term is peasant, with connotations of subsistence or simple farming that aims to survive rather than generate a profit; however, campesino lacks the negative connotations that are associated with the term peasant. In the Hispanic world, many people referred to as campesinos survive using subsistence farming, whereas subsistence farming almost entirely died out in the Anglophone world.
The term guajiro, which is American Spanish for "rustic," is a synonym for campesino in Cuba, where it is also related to Guajira (music).
