        Population Geography | The Power of Place

        This half hour video program features two case studies on countries in Latin America: Mexico: Motive to Migrate and Guatemala: Population and Conquest. The first case study explores migration both within Mexico and to Mexico's northern neighbor, the United States. The second case study examines the historical geography of Guatemala. The country's history of Spanish conquest began in 1524, when Mayan mountain Indians were subjugated, not for their land or wealth, but to provide the labor needed to create and maintain plantations and haciendas.
