Ricardo Flores Magón, a prominent opponent of the Porfirio Díaz dictatorship in late nineteenth-century Mexico, was raised in Oaxaca by a Zapotec father and mestiza mother with Spanish heritage. This chapter sheds light on a little-known aspect of the transnational anarchism that Flores Magón developed in the Mexican Liberal Party, which played a prominent role in the Revolution and was influential among Yaqui Indians in the northwest: its appropriation of real and imagined aspects of rural indigenous culture and heritage in an effort to popularize anarchist ideology in the Mexican context.
