The prototype project, led by a multinational team of Latin Americanist geographers, focuses on the geography of Mexico's indigenous populations and the changes in the cultural landscape and conservation of natural resources resulting from the gargantuan land certification and privatization program called PROCEDE. The MI team documents how this land tenure change will undo the ejido and other communal land ownership forms, turning social property into private.
México Indígena employs participatory research mapping combined with traditional, archival, and humanistic methods to develop a truly participatory GIS (Geographic Information System). Part of this GIS is now online.
