El objetivo de este trabajo es mostrar cómo la política social está inmersa en un contexto histórico particular que provoca a su vez determinadas consecuencias. En la primera sección se argumenta que el legado histórico da forma a actitudes, costumbres y valores. En la segunda sección apreciamos cómo el legado histórico provoca la marginación de la Sierra y sobre todo de su población indígena. En la tercera sección consideramos cómo las líneas importantes de la política social no han tenido éxito en modificar el legado histórico.
