¿Cuál palabra es más común en México, indio o indigine?
en México,qual palabra es mas corecto y/o comun:indio o indigena?
Welcome to the forum. All of the Mexicans that I've know say "indigena". Here's a link to "indio" wikipedia: indio Actually, I've never heard anyone say "indio" to refer to someone from India either. I've always heard "hindú".
The problem with "indio" is that in many places it has negative or pejorative connotations.
"Indio" is also a misnomer. The Spanish conquerors started calling the native people they found in the newly discovered continent "indios" simply because they were sure they had arrived to India. It was a good few years before they realized that this was new place for them, and then they went on calling these lands the New Indies.
I agree with Alba.
I heard only the word "indigena" in Mexico.
