Once again, Donna Jones gets the story wrong. This land was indigenous to the Ohlone Indians, not the Mexicans. The Mexican race is only 500 years old. It began with Cortes and La Malinche. Indigenous land for the Mexicans is Southern Mexico/Central America and Spain.

From the article:

More than half of California's farmworkers are estimated to be indigenous Mexican migrants. Most frequently from Mixteco,
Triqui, Zapoteco and Purepecha communities, they speak native languages rather than Spanish

They are native groups indigenous to Mexico and they come here to work.
