Abstract

Mexican Americans are the largest subgroup of Hispanic Americans. The geography of this ethnic population is most evident in the southwestern and western United States. The core states of this borderland like Texas, California, Arizona, and New Mexico represent the greatest concentration of Mexican Americans, yet a set of new emerging regions in the west illustrates the recent geographic diversity of the population. Historically and at the present, Mexican Americans are an urban people with some 21 separate metropolitan areas each counting greater than 100 000 Mexican Americans. This essay examines the regional cultural variation among Mexican Americans by comparing the geography of Mexican Americans in Texas with those of Mexican Americans in peripheral emergent regions distant from the border. The essay then discusses the persistence of Spanish language use in this population and the common practice of cultural celebrations.
