After the Mexican American war, the Mexicano 's and the Americans made a treaty between both countries. The treaty of Guadalupe Hildalgo helped set up a fair system of government for the Mexicano 's through manifest destiny. In order for Mexicano’s to keep their land they had to have their title.

For Garnet, he’s never really had either form go home. He mainly grew up in foster care, going from house to house constantly. He never really thought of these houses as his home but rather somewhere he lived for a short time. As a child, he only lived with his family for about a quarter of his life, and even that is considered minuscule due to his lack of memory retention at such a young age. Therefore, Garnet doesn’t know what a home can be.
When growing up, one can second guess their beliefs and who they are. This usually happens when people are introduced to other ideas. This helps them create their own identity, and solidify who they are and their beliefs. This can lead to even more opinions in societies with more cultural syncretism which leads to clashing between religious and cultural ideals. In the novel “Bless me, Ultima”, Rudolfo Anaya uses the cultural and religious syncretism in the society of New Mexico to display juxtaposition between the Luna and Márez, as well as Catholicism and the Golden Carp, to help Antonio solidify and change his beliefs, displaying the consequences and results of cultural syncretism.
Bless Me, Ultima also presented the process of acculturation for Mexican-Americans, especially in the education system.

It took a while to feel at “home” based on the fact that almost no one lived on the block besides us. Everyone seemed to move on the block and then move away less than six months later. My family, however, lived at this house for 8 years. My older brother and I went to school around the corner.
George, you stated, “Various forms of culture are all around us and sometimes it is difficult to understand why different cultures respond to each other the way they do,” this is very true. I think it is a matter of history repeating itself, or in other words, learned behavior from past cultures, as well as difference in the ways of communication, and customs.

This is why it is very important for archivists to seek out education about different cultures because the world is very diverse, and everyone has a history that needs to be preserved for future generations.
