Chichimeca - Mexico
Chichimeca Jonaz | Mision de Chichimecas, Guanajuato | Mexico, 2017
The Chichimeca people clashed directly with the Spanish colonizers in the sixteenth century. When the Spanish found silver in the area where the Chichimecas lived, colonization intensified with the building and operation of mines. This sparked decades of Chichimeca resistance. The Chichimeca War, which lasted from 1550 and 1590, saw the local community fighting the Spanish to defend their land and culture from colonization, forced religious conversion and exploitation.
