Abstract: "The highland indian communities of Meso-America have a long history of communally owned property, which has been managed locally for centuries. In this paper, I would like to give a history of the institutions of communally owned forest and grazing lands as they have existed in communities of the Purepeche speaking area of Central Mexico and specifically in the community of Cuanajo, Michoacan, where I have done fieldwork, off and on, since 1966."
