Mexican-American? ~ American-Mexican?

It is becoming harder to distinguish what is Mexican and what is U.S. American for several reasons.

About two-thirds of what is now the United States was once colonial New Spain/Mexico. Roughly the U.S. Midwest was bought from Napoleon’s France in the Louisiana Purchase of 1803. Napoleon got the land from Spain. The Republic of Texas carved off some more in 1836. The Mexican-American War (1846-48) took another big chunk. The Gadsden Purchase of 1853 took another valley for the Southern Pacific branch of the transcontinental railroad. Every time the border moved, Mexicans became U.S. Americans. There is an old saying that, “we didn’t cross the border, the border crossed us.”

Being neighbors, we have long-standing migration patterns. Mexicans used to work in the United States in Spring, Summer and Fall and return home to Mexico for Christmas. This blended us together. Mexican food has become U.S. American food. U.S. American Halloween face painting traditions are now part of Mexico’s Day of the Dead celebrations.

Mexico is really an Indigenous country with a Colonial Spanish cultural overlay. In the U.S., we think of “American Indians” as different from Indigenous Mexicans, but there is a continuum of Indigenous culture from Alaska and the Northwest Territories to Tierra del Fuego in Argentina and Chile. “American Indian” horse culture, the height of that civilization, was derived from Spanish horses.

Mexican-American culture that was once concentrated in the former Mexican states of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, and California has spread all across the country. California already has a Hispanic majority. Today Mexican-Americans contribute to the life and economies of every state.

Cubans, Puerto Ricans and more recently Dominicans have been the dominant Latin cultures in New York City, but Mexican-Americans are projected to dominate here too, as soon as 2020. 116th Street in El Barrio East Harlem, once the main street of Puerto Rican New York City is becoming a Mexican neighborhood.

Bay Ridge, Brooklyn which was once very Italian is also becoming a Mexican neighborhood. New York City restaurant kitchens, once dominated by Greek-Americans, are now mostly run by Mexican-Americans. Mexican chefs cook all kinds of cuisines.
