Exploring the Multicultural Aspects of New Mexico

Assignment #6

Create a t-chart called "The Melting Pot of New Mexico"

Your t-chart should show the two main cultures that historically characterize New Mexico.  One side of the chart should be labeled Spanish Catholic and the other should be labeled Native American and/or Native Mexican "Curanderismo".  Record what you learn from the three links below about each sub-group.  Be very detailed.
