These are archival records tracking the slave trade in Tamiahua, Mexico. It documents the early stages of slavery in Mexico which due to the introduction of new diseases brought a significant reduction in the indigenous population. The eventual effects of the population shortages combined with other negative aspects of the conquest caused the Spanish to look elsewhere to supplement their labor force and maintain productivity, which included importing slaves.
