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. In the Spanish-speaking world, many people referred to as campesinos survive using subsistence farming, as in other parts of the 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).
