This volume, the first of its genre in English, brings together the pioneering work of scholars of urban Indians of colonial Latin America. An important, but understudied segment of colonial society, urban Indians composed a majority of the population of Spanish America's most important cities. The geographic range, chronological scope, and thematic content of urban native studies is addressed by examining such topics as the role of natives in settling frontier regions, interethnic relations, notaries and chroniclers, and the continuation of indigenous governance. In spanning the entirety of the colonial period, the persistence and the creation of urban Indian identities and their contributions to colonial society is brought to the fore. Scholarly contributions include chapters by Susan Schroeder, "Whither Tenochtitlan? Chimalpahin and Mexico City, 1593-1631" and David Cahill, "Urban Mosaic: Indigenous Ethnicities in Colonial Cuzco". The volume opens with commentary by John K Chance, pioneer scholar of urban Indians in Latin America and author of the highly praised Race and Class in Colonial Oaxaca and is summed up in "Concluding Remarks" by Kevin Terraciano, author of the widely acclaimed The Mixtecs of Colonial Oaxaca: Nudzahui History. The diverse themes, time periods, and geographic regions discussed herein make this illustrated book essential reading for all those engaged in colonial and indigenous studies.

Review:

“Although both the Andes and Mesoamerica experienced centuries of urban development prior to the Spanish conquest, many historians and social scientists have tended to treat First Nations peoples resident in cities as deracinated, cut loose from their communities of origin, and therefore assumed to be less pristine and less authentically indigenous. The study of urban indigenous groups in the Americas has lagged behind that of rural communities. This volume, however, attests to a growing interest in the urban ethnohistory of colonial Spanish America. It spans the entire colonial era, from Tenochtitlan and Cuzco, the two great imperial capitals encountered by the Spaniards upon their arrival, to new colonial foundations: Lima, Puebla, Trujillo del Perú, Zacatecas, Mérida, and Santiago de Guatemala. All these cities contained large indigenous populations. This volume thus marks progress in understanding city Indians, relations between urban and rural groups, and an overall appreciation of the colonial experience of indigenous peoples in Spanish America.”  —From the Preface by First Nations Series Editor, David Cahill, University of New South Wales
