Social Hierarchies

I know that the casta system was peninsulares, then creoles, then mixed people, then indegenous, then africans. However, mixed people included people who were half indegenous, half african, so shouldn’y they have been below the indegenous people and above Africans?

Good question, lets jump in our time machine and ask.

Since we can’t do that right now. This individual question would be something interesting to look into in the future.

But it seems like you understand the hierarchy well.
