Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Collection consists of the manuscripts, financial records, land documents, and other records from the Curiel family, pertaining to the operation and upkeep of their hacienda.
The hacienda economic system began in colonial Mexico as a means of establishing landed elites who ruled over and exploited the labor of indigenous peoples and mestizo workers. The hacienda became a ready source of class and ethnic conflict that would ignite during the Mexican Revolution.
