This chapter summarizes the problem of creating a coherent national identity, starting with the Mexican Revolution. It focuses on how the Mexican state tried to combine national identity and institutions in the 1930s and 1990s. It then closely examines the ways the educational system has been used as a way to distribute the state's claim to Emiliano Zapata and the Mexican Revolution as a way to forge nationalist ideology.

Keywords:   national identity, Mexican Revolution, educational system, Emiliano Zapata, nationalist ideology
