The new book by acclaimed Mexican author Paco Ignacio Taibo II entitled “Yaquis” tells the story of an indigenous people that waged the longest armed resistance in the history of Mexico and perhaps Latin America. For centuries, the Yaqui Indians of Sonora fought back against those who wanted to take away their lands and colonize their people. The book also tells the story of “the worst and still hidden genocide in Mexican history”, when thousands of Yaqui were massacred and forced into slavery by the Mexican government. This is a conversation with the author.
Guest: Paco Ignacio Taibo II, author, Yaquis: Historia de una guerra popular y de un genocidio en México, Mexico City.
