La Gente: Borderlands
I Didn't Cross the Border, The Border Crossed Me
The Esquibel Family (History Colorado)
The territory Mexico lost to the United States after the war has a unique culture and history. This region—historians call it “the Borderlands”—is claimed by multiple American Indian tribes and has been claimed by France, Spain, Mexico, and the United States. The names of towns, rivers, and mountains reflect elements of all these cultures. The city of Pueblo, Colorado sits directly on the Arkansas River, which was once an international boundary between the United States and Mexico.
