The New Mexican Constitution for Nuevomexicanos

Procedimientos de la Convención Constitucional del propuesto estado de Nuevo México tenida en Santa Fé, Nuevo México. Octubre 3, 1910 hasta Noviembre 21, 1910.

Notes: A scarce, Spanish-language issue of this key document in New Mexican history, the proceedings of the state constitutional convention. Many of the delegates to the convention were nuevomexicanos and this and other official documents in Spanish were essential to encouraging their constituents to understand and participate in the process.

Among the proposals put forth were a guarantee of the rights of the people under the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo (October 31), a proposal to allow segregated schools for African American children but not for children of "procedencia Española" (November 7), and a law that would make it illegal to bring alcohol into Indian country (November 16).
