Like other countries in Latin America, Mexico experienced a cycle of intense protest activity in which indigenous ethnicity became the main cleavage for mobilization for the first time in many decades Trejo; Yashar Morality and the Boundaries of Race, Stavenhagem and Immigration. Ethnic categorization in Indo-Latin American countries such as Mexico has been less studied using survey data.
