Pueblos Indígenas de México

Los pueblos indígenas de México son las colectividades que asumen una identidad étnica con base en su cultura, sus instituciones y una historia que los define como los pueblos autóctonos del país, descendientes de las sociedades mesoamericanas. El Estado mexicano reconoce a los pueblos indígenas al definirse en su Constitución Política como una nación multicultural fundada en sus pueblos indígenas. De acuerdo con un cálculo del Instituto Nacional Indigenista (INI), Comisión Nacional para el Desarrollo de los Pueblos Indígenas (CDI), en 2012 la población indígena era de aproximadamente 15 millones de personas, repartidas en 56 grupos étnicos.

La misión de este proyecto es agregar y mejorar los perfiles que corresponden a Pueblos Indígenas de México. Los miembros del proyecto tienen como responsabilidad principal los perfiles o grupos familiares relativos y trabajan en la fusión de los duplicados, la limpieza de los perfiles, agregando fuentes, quitando datos incorrectos y ofreciendo asistencia en las investigaciones según sea necesario.
