Mexican Americans are a mixture of the Spanish Conquistadores (Conquerors) and the Indigenous tribes that first roamed the Americas such as the Aztecs, Mayans, Incas, etc.
Mexican Americans are individuals whose families originate in Mexico. Mexican Americans can either be people who immigrated from Mexico themselves or whose ancestors immigrated.

Mexicans, Americans or Mexican-Americans. Be aware that "Mexican", "American" and even "Texan" are nationalities, not ethnic definitions.

The Spaniards were originally in Texas in the late 17th century, after the Mexican Revolution in 1810 Mexico calmed Texas as a Providence. It was not until the Texas Revolution in the mid 19th century that made many proud Mexican citizens in the new Republic of Texas. So to summarize Mexican were here before any Americans, and occupied the Texas long before the US was ever created.

The current social status of Mexican Americans in the United States is not too good. There is a lot of debate within the country about the entry of 'illegal' Mexican immigrants, so Mexican Americans are often met with a lot of discrimination.

After the Mexican-American War, a large percentage of Mexican territory came into the United States. However, much of that land was sparsely populated, making the Mexican-American population not very high. The treaties that ended the Mexican-American war promised Mexican Americans that they would be able to hold onto their property. However, this was not often enforced and there were a number of laws passed by the States and the Federal Government that were discriminatory to Mexican Americans. By and large, Americans who were not White Anglo-Saxon Protestant were maltreated prior to the 1930s and Mexican Americans were no exception to this.
