Despojo de la tierra a los Yaquis. (El ejército de Don Porfirio al servicio de las empresas yanquis) Grabado de Leopoldo Méndez.

José María Leyva, “Cajeme”, dirigió a los Yaquis de Sonora en la lucha por la defensa de las tierras del Bacatete y del Valle del Mayo. El porfirismo persiguió con saña inaudita a estos honrados y aguerridos campesinos, quienes dieron con su sacrificio un ejemplo de patriotismo que permanecerá inalterable a lo largo de toda nuestra historia. La Revolución Mexicana ha hecho plena justicia a los Yaquis al devolverles propiedades que siempre habían sido suyas.


Dispossession of the land of the Yaquis. (The army of Don Porfirio at the service of Yankee/American companies) Print by Leopoldo Méndez.

José María Leyva, "Cajeme", led the Sonora Yaquis in the struggle for the defense of the Bacatete and Valle del Mayo lands. The porfirismo regime pursued these honest and brave peasants with unprecedented cruelty, who through their sacrifice serve as an example of patriotism that will remain unchanged throughout our history. The Mexican Revolution has done absolute justice to the Yaquis by returning property that had always been theirs.
