Throughout the Porfirian era Mexico had struggled to develop as a country and move towards any steps of progress up until the year of 1910. In William H. Beezley’s book Judas at the Jockey Club he considers this period on Mexican history to begin around 1876 and he points out many of the social, economic, and political factors that helped shape the foundation for modern Mexico. Beezley also looks at some of the regular aspects of the daily lives of Mexicans. Whether it be the sports and recreations, ceremonies and celebrations, or jobs and work that are part of the Mexicans everyday live, he uses these aspects to illustrate the extent of the two main culture groups of Mexican society. The two main culture groups in Mexico were the Los de Arriba,

Porfirio Díaz was the President of Mexico from 1877 to 1911, for more than thirty-five years. He played a significant role in bringing about the Mexican Revolution. Díaz established a strong centralized government, and throughout his presidency he controlled everything as an absolute ruler. During his reign, which was one of Mexico 's longest lasting and most stable in terms of politics, he completely repressed and eliminated opposition through governing by his own rule with an iron fist. Even though Díaz is considered as one of the most prominent dictators of Mexico, he left a strong print in the history of Mexico while laying the foundations that made the current country.
The nature of the spread of Moche-style architecture and pottery has been debated, with a theory of a Moche conquest state facing opposing theories of a “Mochelandia”, the diffusion of a Moche art style or religion across multiple valleys. In the Santa Valley, widespread changes in settlement patterns between the Gallinazo Late Suchimancillo period and the Moche Guadalupito period, including the movement of people from the upper valley to the lower valley, the maximization of arable land, the abandonment of Late Suchimancillo sites and citadels, and the establishment of a regional center support the theory of a Moche conquest in the region. Settlements in the Late Suchimancillo period are clustered in the narrow upper river valley (maps a and b). This region has a high concentration of settlements, including the local centers at sites 11, 25, 45, 72, and 103. These centers, not including their surrounding settlements, together held a population of about 10,000, or roughly one third of the Santa Valley’s total population.
Was justice in Aztec society fair? Aztec society had a sophisticated code law which included crime and punishments. Civilians who were guilty of adultery, stealing someone’s crops, embezzlement, public drunkness and other upmost offences were punished via “the death sentence…or severe corporal punishment/mutilation ……” (Aztec History. 2013).
Along with Brazil, Mexico has demonstrated a similar phenomenon, amongst the Nahuatl-speaking locals. It is another Virgin Mary figure which was discovered on a sacred Aztec site. The statue is commonly referred to as Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe (Our Lady of Guadalupe, pictured below), however the indigenous people call her Tonantzin, after an indigenous goddess of the earth. Asides from religious figurines, there are many buildings in Latin America which are known to be influenced by the colonisation which are religious sites, most often churches. The increase in the number of churches in Latin America is another sign that religion took a large part in changing Latin American society and lifestyle.
A major factor that I had learned when perusing the articles in module two and chapter two was that in the Spanish conquest of America, labor had played a significant role to the Spaniards. Any of the gold that had been discovered in the Spanish conquest was proportioned to the monarchy, then leaders and administrators, and lastly the conquistadors. This had left the conquistadors with minuscule amounts gold and disappointed, in correspondence, the conquistadors were given encomiedas. The Spaniards had presumed they were superior to the Indians and had the right to possess them because they had been situated on the monarchs’ property. The Spaniards confronted the Native Americans with guns, germs, and steel.

Pablo and his brother were once sent home from school because Pablo had no shoes and no money to buy them. Escobar studied political science at a nearby university but was forced to drop out when he could not afford to pay the required fees.
Latin America, in the late 19th century, was a time for the flourishment of independent nation states and a new social and political view for the people that fought for independence. The structure of the colonies, in the colonial period, were established by a system based on race which influenced many aspects of life in Latin America and in the years to come. The Spanish and Portuguese set up administrative systems, such as the cabildos, viceroyalties, and audiencias in colonial Latin America, in order to manage local municipal governing and maintain rule by the crown. In order to extract resources from the colonies, the Iberian crowns set up a cascade system through which laws passed from the crown to be implemented by the cabildos.
Spanish conquers never considered colonize California because the peninsula did not fulfill their ambitions. The expedition leaded by Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo in 1542 was just the beginning of future expeditions to the northwest of America; in this occasion, Cabrillo sail around the Baja and proclaimed the land as Spain propriety. One inconvenient found in Cabrillo's exploration was the lack of gold and precious metals in California.
