Question

Who were Las Gorras Biancas?

Answer

Las Gorras Blancas (which means "The White Caps" in Spanish) were a collective that operated in the New Mexico Territory and American Southwest during the late 1880s and early 1890s. They rose up against Anglo-American settlers who were unlawfully taking land and resources from Hispano and indigenous communities in the area.
