History[eedit | eedit soorce]

This toun, alang wi three ither suburbs nearbi (Santa María, la Raya an San Bartolo el pequeño), were initially pairt o a lairger municipality cried San Bartolo Coyotepec. Housomeivver, ower time, Animas an those three commonties separatit an eventually became unthrilt. At first, Animas wis anerlie inhabitit bi twa or three faimilies who wur sent thare bi San Bartolo in order tae wirk the laund. Durin that time, the awner o an adjacent ferm called "Hacienda del Carmen" dividit it an gave each o his wirkers a portion. Acause this ferm wis close tae Animas, it an its inhabitants later became a pairt o it. Whan Animas' name wis chyngit tae "Animas Trujano", the toun wis no yet a municipality. It became on 17 Februar 1868, efter the Mexican War o Unthirldom, that it wis offeecially recognisit as a municipality.
