500 years ago, Mexico was all Native. Then the Spanish invaded in 1521.

After centuries of Spanish colonization, the new Mestizo ethnicity dominated.

The racial divisions of "La Casta" (caste system) ranked Indios to bottom of colonial society.

Mestizos that recognized their own Indian blood would be lowering themselves. to this day many "laugh" when you mention if they have Indian blood, or ancestors. They consider Indians to be "backwards" and uneducated.

There are many Mexican tribes that still live as their ancestors did: Tarahumara, Wixarika (Huichol) Mixteco, etc, etc etc
