The Birth of Blacks

Year / 2011 - ongoing

Mascogos. Ethnic group, not native to Coahuila, Mexico.

They are a group of black Seminoles who escaped slavery and arrived in Mexico in 1850. They are in the process of disappearance because the elderly have already died or emigrated from the colony, but there's also an interesting adaptation process that includes the Afro-Seminole as a biological reference, and miscegenation with Mexicans, which increases the number of culturally Mexican population.
