(p.209) Epilogue: Republican Ironies
Yaquis and the Empire

Raphael Brewster Folsom

Yale University Press

This epilogue explores the continuity that marked the ideologies and ambitions of the postcolonial governments the Yaquis of northern Mexico confronted over the course of the nineteenth century. It looks at the laws implemented by those governments, disguised as acts of generosity, but in reality they were attacks on everything the Yaquis held dear, particularly the special rights, privileges, and cultural peculiarities the Yaquis had developed under Spanish colonial rule. It also examines the Yaqui insurgency as a response to those oppressive measures and highlights Yaquis' sophisticated deployment of violence and negotiation, threats and kindnesses as products of their long, contentious collaboration with the forces of the Spanish empire.

Keywords:   insurgency, Yaquis, Mexico, laws, violence, negotiation, collaboration, Spanish empire, postcolonial governments
