"Indígenas de la nación. Etnografía histórica de la alteridad en México (Milpa Alta, siglos XVII-XXI)" explains the processes through which a person or a group is identified as indigenous, in three different moments in Mexico, from the 17th century to the present. Based on a historical ethnography related to Milpa Alta, a rural area of Mexico City that is now recognized as the original Puebla, key ideas are demonstrated, such as the different signifiers and significances of the label "indigenous". Features chapters on territory disputes, the Milpa Alta conflict in the 20th century, Aztec nationalism, globalism, and more.
