South Texas, the Rio Grande Valley
What does it mean to be Mexican and what does it mean to be American?
As a Mexican, I know that I for sure have Spanish-Aztec Blood and maybe Mayan too (not too sure since my Spanish ancestors were quite brutal to my native ancestors).
As an American, I know that I have Apache Blood and that I was "fortunate" to be born North of the Rio Grande River. Raised in America as a 3rd generation Mexican-American, my first language English and second Spanish;
Known Native American Languages? None.
"Ha´didla`Ndé" meaning the Lightning Storm People was the name of the people that lived in the area that I was raised in.
Maybe their language was once my ancestors...
My search continues...
As I learn more about myself... I feel that I'm very mix cultured because I'm surrounded by so many in California.
