TREJO CONTRERAS, Zulema. Indigenous People and Nation-State Building, 1840-1870. Frontera norte [online]. 2014, vol.26, n.51, pp.5-24. ISSN 2594-0260.

The article analyzes the role of the indigenous societies of Sonora in the construction of the Mexican nation-state in the 19th century. On the basis of three analytical axes (land, war and citizenship), it discusses the main perspectives -both theoretical and analytical- under which indigenous people have been presented as coadjuvant agents or obstacles in the establishment of the institutions comprising the Mexican nation-state. By way of a conclusion, the author suggests the need to rethink the impositions placed on these societies and the specific reactions of the latter.

Keywords : indigenous; ethnical minority; nation-state; political history; Mexico.
