, and possibly western Guatemala, are the lands to which the Capulin is native. The Capulin has been cultivated for the areas now including Central America, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia, and is extensively and abundantly naturalized. The Capulin was an important food for the Indians, inhabitants, and the Spanish conquistadors who conquered the new lands of the Americas. At times, the Capulin served as the main food group for the Spanish. In native markets, the Capulin appears in great quantities, especially in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Ecuador. In Guatemala, the seedlings of the Capulin are used as rootstock from which commercial cultivars of the northern cherry are grafted. The Capulin is little-known in eastern South America and elsewhere in the world. In 1924, the Capulin was introduced into the cool medium elevations of the Philippines. The war affects Pinkard more fundamentally - and negatively - than many other characters in the series. Conscripted into the Confederate Army late in 1915, he and his friend, Sonoran recruit Hipolito Rodriguez, receive their baptism by fire when they go into combat against the "Red" rebels. Coming home on leave in 1917, he catches his wife Emily performing fellatio on his best friend and next-door neighbor, Bedford Cunningham. That, combined with the Confederacy's defeat that year, leaves him a bitter and vengeful man. Although his wife betrayed him with a white man, in his mind the deep sense of personal betrayal by her seems to blend with the widespread feeling in the surrounding society that the Confederacy had been "betrayed" by the black rebels who "stabbed it in the back" and caused its defeat. '''Cáhita''' is a group of Indigenous peoples of Mexico, which includes the Yaqui (Yaqui people) and Mayo people. Numbering approximately 40,000, they live in west coast of the states of Sonora and Sinaloa. "Cahita: Orientation." ''Every Culture.'' (retrieved 30 Dec 2010) The '''University of Sonora''' (Universidad de Sonora (:es:Universidad de Sonora), abbreviated as '''Unison''') is located in the state of Sonora, Mexico. It was founded in 1942 after a committee to create a state university was formed on August 10, 1938. These canciones (Song) were a big part of Ronstadt's family tradition and musical roots. The title ''Canciones De Mi Padre'' refers to a booklet that the University of Arizona published in 1946 by Ronstadt's aunt, Luisa Espinel who had been an international singer in the 1920s.

absorbed by the nearby Hurricane Lorena. Rafael Sandoval's character has subsequently made guest appearances in one of the Justice League titles, in which he is possessed by the spirit of an Aztec god-emperor and takes on an appearance reminiscent of the Lazarus Lane Diablo. He also appears in the Villains United Special (Villains United) when he is pulled out of retirement by Oracle (Barbara Gordon) to serve in her ''de facto'' Justice League, whereupon he is attacked by a member of the Royal Flush Gang during a battle at the ''Enclave M (List of correctional facilities in comics#Enclave M)'' prison in the Sonora Valley (Sonora), Mexico. He is wounded in the battle, but saved from death by the warden of the facility. '''''American Empire: The Center Cannot Hold''''' is the second book in the ''American Empire (American Empire (Harry Turtledove))'' series by Harry Turtledove. It takes place during the period of the Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression (specifically from 1924 to March 4, 1934). During this era in Turtledove's Southern Victory Series world, the Confederate States of America, stretching from Sonora to Virginia, is led by Whigs (with fascists (fascism) gaining more and more power) while the United States of America (which has been occupying Canada) is controlled by socialists (socialism).

of the Spaniards, when the use of firearms led to the extinction of many food animals. The Seris' traditional beliefs are based on the animals in their environment, especially the pelican and the turtle, with the sun and moon playing important roles as well. Gonzalez, pp. 24–25 Rituals are now based on Catholicism, especially those related to birth, puberty and death, but they include traditional chants about the power of the sea, the shark and great deeds of the past. They are also known for the use of face paint during rituals which is applied in lines and dots of various colors. thumb Punta Chueca, Sonora (File:Punta Chueca Socaaix 1.JPG) The Tohono O’odham, still referred to as the Pápago by Spanish speakers, have inhabited the most arid areas of the state, and are mostly found in Caborca, Puerto Peñasco, Sáric, Altar (Altar, Sonora) and Plutarco Elías Calles (Plutarco Elías Calles, Sonora) in the north of the state. However, most people of this ethnicity now live in neighboring Arizona. The Tohono O’odham have as a principle deity the “Older Brother,” who dominates the forces of nature. Among their most important rituals is one called the Vikita, which occurs in July, with dances and song to encourage rainfall during the area’s short rainy season. In July, during the full moon, a dance called the Cu-cu is performed, which is to ask for favors from Mother Nature so that there will be no drought and the later harvests will be abundant. The dance is performed during a large festival with brings together not only the Tohono O’odham from Sonora, but from Arizona and California as well. The feast day of Francis of Assisi is also important. Many of these people are known as skilled carpenters, making furniture as well as delicate figures of wood. There are also craftspeople who make ceramics and baskets, especially a type of basket called a “corita.”. Gonzalez, p. 25

Joined to the federation under the name of ''Estado de Occidente'' (Western State) also recognized as ''Sonora y Sinaloa''.

'''Sonora''' ( ), is one of 31 states that, with the Federal District (Mexico City), comprise the 32 federal entities (Political divisions of Mexico) of Mexico. It is divided into 72 municipalities (Municipalities of Sonora); the capital city is Hermosillo. Sonora is located in Northwest Mexico, bordered by the states of Chihuahua (Chihuahua (state)) to the east, Baja California to the northwest and Sinaloa to the south. To the north, it shares the U.S.–Mexico border (Mexico–United States border) with the states of Arizona and New Mexico, and on the west has a significant share of the coastline of the Gulf of California.

Sonora's natural geography is divided into three parts: the Sierra Madre Occidental in the east of the state; plains and rolling hills in the center; and the coast on the Gulf of California. It is primarily arid or semiarid deserts and grasslands, with only the highest elevations having sufficient rainfall to support other types of vegetation.

Sonora is home to eight indigenous peoples, including the Mayo (Mayo people), the Yaqui (Yaqui people), and Seri (Seri people). It has been economically important for its agriculture, livestock (especially beef), and mining since the colonial period, and for its status as a border state since the Mexican–American War. After the Gadsden Purchase, Sonora lost more than a quarter of its territory. From the 20th century to the present, industry, tourism, and agribusiness have dominated the economy, attracting migration from other parts of Mexico.
