They don't look or act the same that I can see. I met some Pueblo Indians a few years back when I was in the South West. They were cool and laid back and wore turquoise jewlery and kept their hair long. Mexicans look and act different to me

Yes, it is basicly the same blood lines. Most Mexicas are descendants of the Natives, mixed w/a little Spanish, but not as much Spanish as they think.

You must be blind, I can not see how you can look at most Mexicans, and just see a white Spanaird standing in front of you. I have lived in Texas, and those people do not looke Caucasion. I am sure there are lots of mixes, with varying features, and if you look at Mexican TV, you will see more European looking actresss, but in real life, most do not look white to me. There are exceptions though.

What were Mexicans before the Spanish conquistador arrived? Or was Mexico just some empty land?

Ok, here is how it is. People who are indigenous to the Americas are Americans. It's actually very simple. Yes Mexico and many places in South and North America were inhabited they were not empty. There are many mixes with European and Native American people. Mexicans are what you call people from Mexico. They have to be of some sort of Native American blood to be indigenous. Most Mexicans are Native Americans except for the ones that are fully Spanish. They were originally called Olmecs, Mixtecs, Aztecs, Mayans, Incans, Iroquois, Cherokee, Powhatan and many more tribes. They are all TRUE Americans.

Mexicans are 60% Mestizo, 30% Amerindian, and 9% white.. Mestizos "Indian" groups from the Aztecs, Mayas, and Toltecs.. usually have distinct physical characteristic.

Are U.S. Americans all white? All Amerindian? All of African descent? Of course not, on all three counts. Before the Europeans arrived in great numbers to the Americas, there were Amerindian peoples with hundreds of different languages from Alaska down all of North and South America to the tip of present day Argentina. During and after the 1500s many of the aborigines (known variously as Amerindian, American Indians, Native Americans, or indigenous peoples of the Americas) either died because of newly arrived diseases such as smallpox, or through warfare. In some areas the native population nearly disappeared (Argentina, Cuba, Uruguay), in others some survived (Brazil, the United States, Costa Rica, Canada), and in other areas large numbers survived (Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Mexico, Central America). The Europeans (Portuguese, Spaniards, French, English, etc) brought slaves from sub-Saharan Africa. Later on different peoples from Asia also came to the Americas. Thus every country in North and South America has different groups of people, and in some more than others there is considerable mixing of all groups. Today there are parts of Mexico where the majority is mostly European looking (parts of Sonora and other northern Mexican states, and also in some of the highland areas of Jalisco and Guanajuato). For the most part, however, most of Mexico is made up mixed race individuals (as Knock Knock said above, about 60%). Some of these, especially along the southern Pacific coast also are mixed with descendants of African slaves. In southern Mexico, the great majority are Amerindian, and they still speak a variety of Mayan, Zapotec, and other indigenous languages which of course have nothing to do with Spanish or other European languages. In the past most Mexican immigrants were either mestizo (a mix of Amerindian and European) or white. During the last twenty years, however, most immigrants from Mexico have come from Oaxaca and other southern Mexican states, and they have gone not only to California and the southwest but to all parts of the USA. Thus it is not surprising that on a day to day basis most U.S. Americans see Mexicans who are mostly Amerindians like their cousins up here (Navajo, Lakota, Ute, Cherokee, etc.). However, the Amerindians from Mexico are different culturally from U.S. Amerindians because they do have some Spanish influences, while those from here have English influences. Also, while most U.S. Amerindians are fluent in English, Amerindians from Mexico often are not fluent in Spanish--back home they used their native languages primarily and still use it amongst each other here. Ironically, 500 years after the European conquest of Mexico, it is in the USA that they begin to learn and use more Spanish.
