A person who has native American (usually from central America) and African ancestry. Many people think that everyone in countries like Mexico and El Salvador is a Mestizo. That is not the case. There were about as many Spanish people as there were Africans in countries like Mexico. At one point the spanish brought about 300 Africans to Mexico, there were about 300 Spanish conquistadors there as well. The Africans had the right to pik their mate, if they mated with a native, their child was born free.Some people in Mexico (the really dark skinned ones) arent Mestizos, they are probably afro-Mestizos.
White guy: Youre Mexican!? you kinda look black dude, your nose is wide, your lips are like Jay z's, you have curly hair but youre short..
Afro indigenous dude: Yeah, my great grandfather was black, he was brought to the Americas as a slave by the Spanish and he mated with a native.
White guy: Whoa..the more you know.
