More than a question of “purity” is a question of way of life and culture. If a person is raised in a tribe, accepted by the tribe, has the tribe values and culture has his own, then he is a member of the tribe, doesn’t really matter if he is pure, not pure, mestiço, white, black or pink, as far as he is human.I believe that the majority of the “native” Mexican population is really “mestizo”, meaning it is mixed Spanish-native. There is a very small number of more or less “pure” native tribes in Mexico but the numbers are quite small.
Didn’t knew that the Spanish had invited USA businessmen to establish in their lands in Texas. How and when was that?In Texas, the Spanish (later the Mexicans) invited American impresarios to settle the land because there weren’t many Mexicans willing to come here and the government saw these settlers as a convenient buffer between the Mexicans and the Comanche and Apache tribes. Big mistake.
