Post-Colonial Modern History
This section collects materials focused on indigenous life and history in post-Colonial times. While we know that one size doesn’t fit all when trying to cover a multiethnic, multinational region , expedience and the need for easily-navigable organization compels me to pick a single cutoff date for dividing Colonial from post-Colonial material. That acknowledged, this page is limited to sources devoted to events after Mexico’s declaration of independence on September 16th, 1810, in a nod to keeping Tenochtitlan as a lodestar.
Collection of papers discussing the modern history and current situation of many of the indigenous peoples in Mexico. Downloadable PDFs available.
