"Raza" in MEChA's El Plan Espiritual de Aztlan does indeed refer to the race of people that inhabited the land prior to European (Spanish) conquest.
What gets my goat is MEChA uses the language of the conquistador-------Spanish. And; if a La Raza type went to Spain------he/she would be treated like crap due to not being White.
