Abstract

This student note takes an historical look at indigenous land tenure in Mexico and the role that limited alienability has played in sustaining indigenous agriculture from the time of the Aztecs up until the reforms enacted by the Salinas administration in Mexico in the early 1990's. As the piece was in edits, the Zapatista rebellion broke out and the text was amended to note the role that land tenure played in the uprising.

Keywords: indigenous land tenure, land reform, inalienability
