This is related to the communities that indigenous people make in the US because it expresses who they, indigenous Mexicans, are by showing this from where they are from. In the process of migration, indigenous peoples have been able to solidify their ethnic identity, which has allowed them to establish themselves and to maintain very close ties with their home communities. BY creating communities so similar to their homeland, it further promotes and strengths the bond to the indigenous homeland and increases the difference between non-indigenous and indigenous Mexicans (Salagrado 7). Although indigenous and non-indigenous Mexicans are different ethnically in many ways, they do share some similarities.
Chicanos are descendants of different races such as Central American Indians, Spanish, Africans, Native Americans, and Europeans. Chicano culture came as result of a mixture of different cultures (Shingles and Cartwright 86). Despite the assimilation by the majority whites the Chicanos have preserved their culture.

Cultural identity, the identity or feeling of belonging to a group, but what does that mean for people? For many of people their cultural identity it describes who they are, their heritage, and who they are as a person. For Pat Mora she has been torn between her cultural identity; she is not accepted by their of her cultures. Frida Kahlo is torn between her home, Mexico, and her current residence, the U.S.A.. While Frida Kahlo and Pat Mora identify as Mexican for their cultural identity, Mora describes wanting to be accepting by both of her cultures, while Frida wants to go home to her true culture.
In the 1960’s, the United States went through a period of clarity and diversity in thought, analysis and action for people from Mexico or those who practiced the Mexican culture. Issues of deep resonance and problems both Mexican and American communities faced were brought to light through different platforms that include multiple socio-political mobilizations, art, and music all throughout the country (Cockcroft, 1993). This later ensued into battles of cultural reclamation and self-determination that combined into a national consciousness called the Chicano Movement. The Chicano Art Movement represents the attempts made by Mexican-American artists in establishing a unique artistic identity in the United States. Most of the Chicanos belonged
Similarities and Difference between American and Mexican Cultures Have you ever wondered what your cultural background is? Today not too many of us could answer that question without having to stop and think about our answer. I am going to talk about the similarities and difference that can be found between the American and Mexican cultures when it comes to our traditions, values and beliefs. Traditions are the handing down of information from one generation to the next generation it could be on how certain ceremonies are performed, to how and when past generations planted crops and how they celebrated different holidays.

I propose that a significant majority of maquiladora unions maintained a strong relationship with the Mexican State and were nearly to the interests of the capital, therefore unions have been able to defend the worker rights, and explains the presence of independent trade unions and transnational organizations as alternative practices of defense. In the beginning of this chapter, I describe how works the Mexican unionism in order to understand the trade unions in the Mexican maquiladoras as a complex relationship among traditional unions, independent unions, worker coalitions, and transnational solidarity networks. In the next section, I explain the unionism in the northern border region, especially in the states of Tamaulipas, Coahuila, Chihuahua,
Rudolfo Anaya is a big contributor, as well as many others, that led to a role model any Chicano can relate to. Anaya is New Mexican and puts his background into his Chicano stories. For example, he wanted to include oral storytellers in his book. As a boy he revealed that he listened “to cuentistas, oral storytellers, and wanted to bring their magic into his writing” (“Anaya, Rudolfo A. 1937”).
De Leon is attempting to demonstrate that Mexican Americans, during the World War I years and the 1920s, expected to become more socially integrated, accepted, and acculturated into American Society, especially Texas, where there were large numbers of Mexican Americans, and an age of modernity was taking place. De Leon, highlights the endeavour that Mexican Americans took to display their patriotism by helping the United States defeat the axis powers during World War I, in order to become more accepted and experience less stifling social conditions in Texas, and also becoming involved and represented in politics and the workplace. De Leon emphasized how Texas Mexicans contributed to the war effort as combatants, by volunteering in the armed
The relationship between Chicanos and Central Americans is a unique one because there is often a misconception and racialization that Central Americans and Chicano are one in the same based on physical characteristics and the way their cultures have intertwined. As Alvarado mention in her article, mutual misrepresentation both groups have not been able to fully represent themselves as either Chicano/Chicana or Central American or perhaps a mixture of both. Both Chicanos and Central Americans for years have occupied the same places and have very similar customs leading to the generalization that all brown people are Mexican or of Mexican descent. As stated in Alvarado’s paper “The Central American borderlands include the isthmus through Mexico
