Good question, they had Mexico signed the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848. The treaty gave the U.S. what is now the states of Arizona, California, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, southwestern Colorado, and southwestern Wyoming.
Mr. Jackson what did the U.S win in the Mexican war?
The Big Question
Now that you know about the past is their any connections you made between these events and Chicanoism or Aztlan?
Connecting the Dots
By seeing were it all started now I know were all the Chicano artist get their inspiration from, like all the symbols and colors they use.
For me I think its cool that Chicanos adapted some of the Aztlan thinking of homeland and that Mexico is their home.
