The term “Purepecha” comes from the “p’urhé” “people” or “person”. The Purépecha culture is known to be a culture that has sustained more strongly than others, due the existence of a bigger population and the continuous practice of their customs.  It is among the most important societies of the Mesoamerican post-classical period. Their origins come from a pre-Conquest mix of Chichimecas, Nahuatl and pretarasco groups who lived in the riversides and islands of Lake of Pátzcuaro at the end of the XII century. There is a hypothesis about their origin that talks about a migration from Peru to Michoacan.
