Catholicism as an Instrument of Counterhegmony: The Religiopolitical Ingenuity of Afro-Mexican People

Abstract

Hernan Cortez, the Spanish conquistador, defeated the indigenous people of present-day Mexico in 1521, and this marked the beginning of the nation's 300-year colonial era. Cortez brought enslaved Africans with him as a labor force, and from this point Blacks, as a subjugated people, exerted an enormous influence on the culture of "New Spain." This study argues that these Africans utilized the Catholic religion, to which they were converted by their masters, as a source of opposition to the dehumanizing conditions of bondage. In developing this position, the article first surveys the sociopolitical culture of Colonial Mexico and then discusses in detail how the African slaves creatively utilized their relationship with the Catholic Church to resist exploitation by their European masters.

In Mexico and Peru Professor Gates explores the almost unknown history of the significant numbers of black people—the two countries together received far more slaves than did the United States —brought to these countries as early as the 16th and 17th centuries, and the worlds of culture that their descendants have created in Vera Cruz on the Gulf of Mexico, the Costa Chica region on the Pacific, and in and around Lima, Peru.
