    The chapter explores why and how Mexican country people changed their way of dress as a way to negotiate new identities as Mexicans and citizens when crossing the border to the United States. Claims to citizenship became central in the face of the prejudice against Indians at home and the systematic racism they encountered in the USA. Tracing changes in clothing, first among men and later women, gives an insight into processes of mestizaje 'from below'.
