Texas Tech sponsored a second expedition in 1935. Thereafter, Holden published ''Studies of the Yaqui Indians of Sonora, Mexico''. The report touches on Yaqui education, marriage, child-rearing, and household economy. **Mountain Garter Snake, ''Thamnophis elegans elegans'' (Baird (Spencer Fullerton Baird) & Girard (Charles Frédéric Girard), 1853) **Mexican (Mexico) Wandering Garter Snake, ''Thamnophis elegans errans'' H.M.

Born in Sahagún, Spain, in 1499, he journeyed to New Spain in 1529, and spent more than 50 years conducting interviews regarding Aztec beliefs, culture and history. Though he primarily dedicated himself to the missionary task, his extraordinary work documenting indigenous worldview and culture has earned him the title “the first anthropologist.” M. León-Portilla, Bernardino de Sahagún: The First Anthropologist (University of Oklahoma Press, Norman, 2002), pp. He also contributed to the description of the Aztec language Nahuatl, into which he translated the Psalms, the Gospels and a basic manual of religious education. The origin of the town's name is generally regarded as a reference to a territorial dispute. The land in the area was first settled by the McDougall brothers, who found squatters there on returning from the goldfields. Once their legal right to the land was recognised, they named their property in honour of the rather more famous dispute between the United States and Mexico over territory in Texas, USA. Town Name The '''''Plaza de Armas''''' ( Plaza of Arms (Weapons)) is the name for the main square (town square) in many Latin American cities. In Mexico this space is known as El Zócalo, and in Central America as Parque Central (Central Park). While some large cities have both a Plaza de Armas and a '''Plaza Mayor''', in most cities those are two names for the same place. * ''Barleeia congenita'' (E. A.

was Presdident of the San Francisco school board and also elected as City Treasurer. Shortly before Leidesdorff's death, vast amounts of gold were officially reported on his ''Rancho Rio De los Americanos.'' By the time his estate was auctioned off in 1856, it was worth more than $1,445,000, not including vast quantities of gold mined upon his land. Leidesdorff traveled to New York to become the Master of the schooner ''Julia Ann'' that sailed from New York to Yerba Buena (later San Francisco) in Alta California, then part of Mexico, in 1841. Sue Bailey Thurman, "William Alexander Leidesdorff", ''Pioneers of Negro Origin in California'', San Francisco: Acme Pub. Co., 1952, excerpt at Virtual Museum of the City of San Francisco, accessed 22 Nov 2009 His route was via Panama, St. Croix, Brazil, Chile the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii), Sitka, Alaska, and on to California following the Pacific Ocean currents during the "Age of Sail". She is a noted feminist (feminism), and her personal life experiences as a Jewish Cuban-American woman are frequently an important part of her writing. Her second book, ''Translated Woman'' (1993), was based on ten years of fieldwork in a rural town in Mexico. Her controversial book ''The Vulnerable Observer: Anthropology That Breaks Your Heart'' examines the role that the personal can play in ethnographic writing (ethnography). Since 1991 her research and writing have largely focused on her native country, Cuba, which she left at the age of four. Her research on the dwindling yet vibrant Jewish community in Cuba is the focus of her film ''Adio Kerida'' (2002), which featured camerawork and editing by her son Gabriel Frye-Behar. Jewish Cuba is also the topic of her latest book, ''An Island Called Home: Returning to Jewish Cuba'' (2007). '''Reik''' is a Latin Grammy-winning Mexican (Mexico) band from Mexicali, Baja California formed by Jesús Alberto Navarro Rosas (lead vocals), Julio Ramírez Eguía (guitar background vocals), and Gilberto Marín Espinoza (guitar). The group's name actually means "rake" (as in raking the guitar's strings), but the band wanted their Mexican listeners to pronounce it correctly, hence, Reik. In 2003, Abelardo Vazquez started their then-nascent musical project, tentatively called "Reik". Abelardo Vazzquez invited Jesús Navarro and Julio Ramirez to recorded their first demos, which were released through the Mexican (Mexico) underground club scene. Two of the most successful demos — "Levemente" and "Ahora Sin Ti" — brought more widespread coverage across Mexico. In early 2004, Reik invited Gilberto to join the band. They have been famous ever since, mainly in Latin America, Mexico, and southern parts of the United States. Their videos have been broadcast on famous music television channels, such as MTV and HTV (Hispanic Television). Their second album, ''Secuencia'', was released on November 14, 2006, which featured the first single, "Invierno" (released on November 6), which gained a lot of popularity based Latin American airplay. In September 2008 ''Reik'' released their third studio album ''Un Día Más (Un dia mas)''. Commercial Success Reik's debut album (Reik (album)) went gold (Gold album) in Mexico on May 6, 2005 after selling 50,000 copies. In June 2005, Reik traveled to the U.S. (United States) to promote their album and its first single. They had a promotional mini-tour that visited Miami, McAllen, San Antonio, Houston, Dallas, San Juan (Puerto Rico), and New York. The album was formally released in the United States on May of that same year. To date, the album has sold 40,000 copies in the U.S. (United States) alone. By May, the album was certified platinum (Platinum album) in Mexico for selling 120,000 copies. They have sold over half a million copies all over America to date. On July 6, 2007, Reik participated in the Alltel Wireless “Mi Círculo, Mi Música” (My Circle, My Music) concert in El Paso, TX. "Prisionero", the first single off their new album "El Disco de tu Corazón", became a #1 hit in their native Argentina. However, the second single "Perfecta" with Mexican (Mexico) singer Julieta Venegas became an even bigger hit worldwide, topping the charts in many Spanish-speaking countries. '''Rock and roll in Cuba''' began in the late 1950s, with artists covering American (United States of America) songs translated into Spanish, as was occurring in Mexico at the same time. Its development was disrupted by the Cuban Revolution; the government of Fidel Castro banned rock music in 1961 as being a corruptive American influence that had no place in the new, puritanical Communist Cuba (which, ironically, was at odds with Marx's (Karl Marx) own liberal views on art and culture, not to mention the fact that many rock groups have espoused "left-wing" ideas). The ban was eventually lifted in 1966. thumb ''Opuntia ficus-indica'' (Indian fig) in Secunderabad (Image:Opuntia ficus-indica (Indian Fig) at Secunderabad, AP W IMG 6674.jpg), India. Cacti are good crops for dry areas because they efficiently convert water into biomass. ''O. ficus-indica'', as the most widespread of the long-domesticated cactuses, is as economically important as corn (maize) and tequila agave in Mexico today. Because ''Opuntia'' species hybridize easily (much like oaks), the wild origin of ''O. ficus-indica'' is likely to have been Mexico due to the fact that its close genetic relatives are found in central Mexico.

. The elaborate design and patterns of a traditional woman's huipil may convey the wearer's village, marital status, and personal beliefs. They are usually made from two or three woven panels joined with decorative stitching, then doubled over and a hole cut in the center panel for the neck (unless woven in during the weaving) and decorated with stitchery. The sides are joined together with more decorative stitching, allowing openings for the arms and in the more ceremonial pieces, ribbons run down
. Distribution Chanterelles are common in northern parts of Europe and North America, including Mexico, in Asia including the Himalayas, and in Africa including Zambia. Chanterelles tend to grow in clusters in mossy coniferous forests, but are also often found in mountainous birch forests and among grasses and low-growing herbs. In central Europe, the golden chanterelle is often found in beech forests among similar species and forms. Most notable of the genus is ''Pholisma sonorae (Sandfood)'', native to the Southwestern United States and Mexico. The species is without chlorophyll and lives as a parasite on the roots of a number of desert species. ''Pholisma'' belongs to the family Boraginaceae. Other species include ''Pholisma arenarium'', the "desert Christmas tree". This species breeds from southern Arizona and New Mexico, USA, south through Mexico to Nicaragua. It is the only bird family endemic to North America (including Central America).

'''Mexico''' ( it is the eleventh most populous (List of countries by population) and the most populous Spanish-speaking (Hispanophone#Hispanosphere) country in the world and the second most populous country in Latin America. Mexico is a federation comprising thirty-one states (Administrative divisions of Mexico) and a Federal District (Mexico City), its capital and largest city (List of cities in Mexico#Largest cities).
In pre-Columbian Mexico many cultures matured into advanced civilizations such as the Olmec, the Toltec, the Teotihuacan, the Zapotec (Zapotec civilization), the Maya (Maya civilization) and the Aztec before first contact with Europeans. In 1521, the Spanish Empire conquered and colonized (Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire) the territory from its base in Mexico-Tenochtitlan, which was administered as the Viceroyalty of New Spain. This territory would eventually become Mexico following recognition of the colony's independence (Mexican War of Independence) in 1821. The post-independence period was characterized by economic instability (Economic history of Mexico#Independence), the Mexican-American War that led to the territorial cession (Territorial evolution of Mexico) to the United States, the Pastry War, the Franco-Mexican War, a civil war (Reform War), two empires (Emperor of Mexico) and a domestic dictatorship (List of Presidents of Mexico#Porfiriato). The latter led to the Mexican Revolution in 1910, which culminated with the promulgation of the 1917 Constitution (Constitution of Mexico) and the emergence of the country's current political system (Politics of Mexico). In March 1938, through the Mexican oil expropriation private U.S. (United States) and Anglo (United Kingdom)-Dutch (Netherlands) oil companies were nationalized to create the state-owned Pemex oil company.
