Amazigh Language and Culture (Berbers and Moors)

The Amazigh are the indigenous people of North Africa, who have long been known by the exonyms Moor and Berber and have a number of distinct languages. They have historically been divided between those who remained in the mountains and opposed the various civilizations of North Africa (the Carthaginians, Romans, Arabs, etc.) and those who integrated into those societies, who became part and parcel of the Arab Islamic Empires in North Africa and Spain.

Who were the moors?

Moors is the Spanish name for Islamic people (mostly from northern Africa) who had invaded Spain in the 8th century. They have ruled south-eastern Spain for a few hundred years before losing their power to the kings of Aragon and Castile.

They were the craftsmen of Spain and taught Europeans to navigate, trade, and build boats. In the 15th century the Spanish turned on them and deported most of them to the countries of the Ottoman Empire.

Amazigh Language and Culture (Berbers and Moors)

When did the Moors come to Mexico?

Spain discovered and began to populate Mexico only a few decades after the Spanish Inquisition had begun. A number of ethnic Moroccan Muslims (Moros y Berberiscos in Spanish) and former Iberian Muslims (Muladíes in Spanish) stayed in Spain and converted to Catholicism, at least on the surface, as opposed to the majority who fled to Morocco or the Ottoman Empire. (This is no different than the Jewish response to the Spanish Inquisition.)

At first, it was Spanish policy to include relatively large numbers of Moros, Berberiscos, and former Muladíes in the groups that would populate Mexico and the Andes regions. However, it was quickly realized that without the strong central authority of the Spanish crown, a number of these individuals were reverting to Islam. Spaniards feared that this would lead to an endemic Islamic population in the Americas, which they would not abide. As a result, in the first few decades of Spanish control, all of the Moros, Berberiscos, and former Muladíes were deported back to Iberia all before the 1550s.

Some people note that Mexicans are, by and large, darker than Spaniards, but this is because of the racial mixture in Mexico between European Spaniards, Africans, and Indigenous Peoples (like the ethnic Maya). This darkness does not derive from the former Moros etc. In the 20th century a small Middle Eastern population of Muslims came to Mexico, but the majority are from countries other than Morocco or Spain and, therefore, would not be considered "Moors".

When did the Moors arrive and leave Spain?

The Moors arrived in 711. On January 2, 1492 the last Moors were defeated militarily and surrendered the Alhambra in Granada. Later in the same year they were forced to convert to Christianity or leave Iberia.

I specifically did not say "Spain" because Spain did not exist at that time. Castile-Leon was one kingdom with a monarch and Aragon was a different kingdom with a different monarch. The three kingdoms became the single kingdom of Spain, under a single, monarch in 1516 when Charles I inherited all three.
