Felipe Carrillo Puerto (1874–1924) was a Governor of the Mexican state of Yucatán. He was born in the town of Motul, Yucatán, and was of partly indigenous Mayan background; he was rumored to be a descendant of the Nachi Cocom dynasty of Mayapan. He was a progressive who favored land reform, women's suffrage, and rights for the indigenous Mayan people. He had a romance with a United States journalist, Alma Reed of San Francisco, California, which was commemorated in the song "La Peregrina". Carrillo Puerto died by assassination in January 1924.

Felipe Carrillo Puerto was called the Red Dragon with the Eyes of Jade by his enemies and the Apostle of the Indians by those who loved him. He was one of 14 children, 13 of whom lived to adulthood. All but one of the Carrillo Puerto siblings worked to better the lives of the Mayan people. When Felipe was killed, 3 of his brothers, Wilfrido, Benjamin, and Edesio, were killed with him, as well as eight of their friends.

The movie "Peregrina" regarding his life was made in 1974 starring Antonio Aguilar. [imdb name|0013487|Antonio Aguilar (I)]

The towns of Felipe Carrillo Puerto, Quintana Roo, and Felipe Carrillo Puerto, Oaxaca, were named in his honor.
