Mexico History and Culture




History
Ancient Mexico and Central America were home to some of the earliest and most advanced civilizations in the western hemisphere.
This region is known historically as Mesoamerica, a term that refers to the geographic area and cultural traditions of the pre-Columbian civilizations of Mexico, Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua.
Evidence indicates that hunting and gathering peoples populated Mesoamerica more than 15,000 years ago and that crop cultivation began around 8000 BC.

Culture
Mexicans place a high value on family and traditional values. Although women make up an increasingly large portion of the labor force. Mexico is characterized by sharp class and social divisions.
A small upper class controls much of the country's property and wealth while the majority of Mexicans live in poverty.
