Re: “Ask a Mexican!

The Mexican its right. Sonora its the perfect example of race and culture mix; actually, european and native´s are blended as no other part of Mexico does. In central and south México, european and native family backgrounds are unlikely to get mixed. In Sonora, european and native are so mixed that Sonorans don´t even know it. The Opata tribe, its totally gone. Not because the where exterminated, no, the Opatas women fell in love with the european man coming to explore the dangerous gold mines in the inhospitable old west (most of the times they came with no family). So Opata culture "disappeared", giving birth to the Rio Sonora culture. In Sonora, almost everyone has either Yaqui, Mayo, Opata, Pápago or Seri backgrounds. That is one of the main factors that model this region of North American culture (Arizona included).
