DISPUTES OVER WATER IN THE VALLE DE TEXMELUCAN, PUEBLA, MÉXICO AT THE END OF THE 17th CENTURY

Abstrac


In this investigation about disputes over water in the Valle de Texmelucan, we found that it is mainly the change in economic and productive orientation, as well as the demographic change, expressed in a concentration of resource property, as well as their management, and not the increase in indigenous population, derived from the territorial reorganization that Spanish colonization implied on the basis of the region’s water resources, what founded and established a new territoriality, unleashing struggle and conflicts over this resource especially since the second half of the 17th Century, when we also find a repositioning of agricultural activity in the New Spain.
