Summary:
Four hundred years ago, Spanish explorers enslaved the Aztec, an advanced native society living in Mexico. Together, Spanish and Aztec became farmers for many years afterward until the Mexican-American War resulted in large amounts of Mexican land being claimed by the United States. Approximately 80 percent of the Mexicans became U.S. citizens. By the turn of the century, the railroad and mining industries relied heavily on Mexican-American labor. The United States continues to be shaped by the values, customs and hard work of Mexican Americans. Their continued success and acceptance further blurs the line between what is called "Mexican" and what is considered "American." Part of the Multicultural Peoples of North America Video Series, a compelling collection that celebrates the heritage of different cultural groups in North America.

Only available in the US.
