Overview

Indigenous Peoples of Mexico

Going beyond preconceived ideas and prejudice, Carlos Montemayor lucidly presents the complex and ongoing history of the difficult process of invention, reformulation, contradiction, and controversy that has been erected around Mexico's indigenous peoples, from the 15th to the 21st century.

Defeated during the Spanish conquest and evangelized; subjected and exploited for three centuries during the colonial period; underestimated by 19th century liberals and deprived of their communal land (an event that led to their agrarian militancy during the 1910 Revolution); oppressed by current pro-indigenous paternalism and ad hoc 21st century interpretations, what are Mexico's indigenous peoples nowadays? In this book, Montemayor unravels a historical plot that spans from the conquest to our days and focuses on indigenous resistance, first to the Spanish crown, now to the Mexican state.
