Raphael Folsom: Yaquis in the Spanish Empire--Negotiating Colonial Power
After the Spanish conquered the Aztec Empire in the 1500s, the hard work of governing that vast empire began.  In the far northwest reaches of their territory in what is now Mexico, the Spanish colonizers and the native Yaqui culture eventually negotiated what came to be a complex, fascinating relationship. The story of this diplomatic dance is the focus of today's program.—Original airdate: 1/25/2017
