Mexican Filipinos are ethnically diverse. They can be White Mexicans, Amerindian Mexicans, or members of any other group. It is reckoned by scientists that the native Americans originally migrated from Asia, so this case constitutes a rare occurrence of reverse migration from the native American gene pool back to Asia.
Mexican immigration to the Philippines mainly occurred during the Spanish colonial period. Between 1565-1821 the Philippines were in fact administered from the Viceroyalty of New Spain's capital, Mexico City. During this period trans-Pacific trade brought many Mexicans and Spaniards to the Philippines as sailors, crew, prisoners, slaves, adventurers and soldiers in the Manila-Acapulco Galleons which was the main form of communication between the two Spanish colonies. Similarly the route brought Filipino Malays, Filipino-born Spaniards and other southeast Asian groups to Mexico.
