Tribal identity is alive and well among Mexican indians, many of whom proudly admit their 'Indio' status, albeit unpopular among the predominant colonial attitudes.

If anyone is truly interested in references and actual information, by all means PM me. If, however, you have more fun making hasty generalizations about entire races of people because it feels good, then let the ethnocentric babble continue.
So why does such a small population of Mexico belong to a native tribe, when most of their population is either native or part native to begin with? In the US, native americans (or people with some ancestry) are a minority-yet a significant portion of them belong to tribes. Why is that?
