In 1521, the Spanish conquistadors led by Hernán Cortés defeated the Aztec Empire in what is now known as Mexico. This marked the beginning of the Spanish colonization of the region.
After over 300 years of Spanish rule, Mexico gained its independence in 1821. The term 'Mexican' began to be associated with the people of the newly formed independent nation.
The Mexican-American War took place from 1846 to 1848, resulting in Mexico losing a significant portion of its territory to the United States. This event further solidified the term 'Mexican' to refer to the people of Mexican descent.
The Mexican Revolution was a period of armed conflict and social upheaval that lasted from 1910 to 1940. It brought about significant changes in Mexico's political and social structure and contributed to the development of a distinct Mexican identity.
The Mexicanidad movement emerged in the 1920s as a cultural and intellectual movement that aimed to define and celebrate the essence of being Mexican. It sought to promote national pride, indigenous heritage, and resistance against foreign influences.
Starting in the 1980s, Mexican cuisine gained widespread popularity worldwide. The increasing popularity of dishes such as tacos, guacamole, and salsa contributed to the term 'Mexican' becoming synonymous with delicious and flavorful food.
