CRAMAUSSEL, Chantal. Poblar en tierras de muchos indios: La región de Álamos en los siglos XVII y XVIII. Región y sociedad [online]. 2012, vol.24, n.53, pp.11-53. ISSN 1870-3925.

The local indigenous population and the one in northern Sinaloa, particularly along the Mayo River, was enough to provide workers for the mining districts discovered in 1683; therefore, there was no need to transfer the workforce from remote places to the region of Álamos. The population of the missions from which the Indians came decreased and their lands were invaded by the newcomers, while the population of the haciendas grew. In the haciendas, the runaway and relocated Indians soon assimilated into the castes, if only nominally. The migrations of the other social groups came mainly from the Sinaloa province to which Alamos belonged.

Keywords : Álamos; mining; demography; relocation; Mayo Indians; Sonora.
