  1. Criollo people

    The Criollo were a social class in the caste system of the overseas colonies established by Spain in the 16th century, especially in Latin America, comprising the locally-born people of pure Spanish ancestry. The Criollo class ranked below that of the Iberian Peninsulares, the high-born permanently resident colonists born in Spain. But Criollos were higher status/rank than all other castes — people of mixed descent, Amerindians, and enslaved Africans. According to the casta system, a Criollo could have up to 1/8 Amerindian, ancestry and not lose social place. In the 18th- and early 19th centuries, changes in the Spanish Empire's policies towards her colonies led to tensions between the Criollos and the Peninsulares. The growth of local Criollo political and economic strength in their separate colonies coupled with their global geographic distribution, and led them to each evolve a separate organic national personality and viewpoint. Criollos were the main supporters of the Spanish American wars of independence.
