Using a database of indigenous marriage petitions spanning from 1690 to 1780, Dana Velasco Murillo explores the migration trends of indigenous peoples to the mines and the markets of New Spain’s preeminent silver mining town, Zacatecas, and considers what indigenous migration reveals about interethnic relations, indigenous identities, and gender roles in New Spain’s urban centers. Velasco Murillo is assistant professor of Latin American history at Adelphi University. She has published in Ethnohistory, has a forthcoming article in the Hispanic American Historical Review, and is coeditor of City Indians in Spain’s American Empire: Urban Indigenous Society in Colonial Mesoamerica and Andean South America, 1530-1810.
