"La India María" (María Elena Velasco) is a fictional character representing the poor , the indigenous, the migrant worker, who deals with racial discrimination, segregation, and corruption, as she leaves her small village and trys to make a life for herself in the city. María’s good-nature and comical relife helped me relate to issues of cultural assimilation.endures situations of racial discrimination, segregation, and corruption, although in all of these turmoils, María undoubtedly resolves them with hilarious acts of good-nature and moral.   

Maria Felix (1914-2002) is a Mexican actress who became famous for playing leading characters demonstrating leadership, courage, and unshakble drive. Her charachters delt with machismo, colonization and nationalism.
