    Both of my biological parents were Mexican

    and on my moms side she had Apache. I was adopted by natives and raised Native so i wasn't raised in a Spanish speaking home. I kind of get judged because of that, which i think is unfair because it's something i couldn't control. In our area, the second largest population is...

    Stereotypers of Mexicans

    When people hear that I am Mexican, they look at me with surprise. In their minds, they are realizing that their stereotypes that the media in the US with which they are presented so persistently doesn't mesh with me. Many people even go as far as voicing these thoughts. For...

    I am indigenous Mexican from my mom's side,

    and Spanish from my dad's side. My mom's mom (my grandma) was indigenous, she even spoke Puebla's (a part of Mexico) own dialect, which I never learned, sadly. My dad's father (my grandpa) was straight from Spain. But I love my Mexican heritage!
