Los Indígenas de México son despojados de sus tierras. Grabado de Francisco Mora.

Con la finalidad de favorecer a los favoritos del régimen encabezado por Porfirio Díaz, las comunidades indígenas fueron despojadas de sus legítimas y centenarias propiedades agrarias. En Sonora, por ejemplo, la tribu yaqui combatió durante más de un cuarto de siglo en la defensa de su patrimonio, ante fuerzas federales bien pertrechadas y numéricamente superiores. Lo mismo pudo observarse en Yucatán y otros lugares de la república.


The Indigenous Mexican People are stripped of their land. Print by Francisco Mora.

With the purpose of favoring the favorites of the regime headed by Porfirio Díaz, the indigenous communities were forced from their land, property that had legitimately belonged to them for a hundred years. In Sonora, for example, the Yaqui Tribe fought for over a quarter of a century in defense of their inheritance against federal forces that were superior in preparation as well as numbers. The same could be observed in Yucatán and in other places of the republic.
