Germans came directly from the Old World to the Hill Country, Cajuns came from France and eventually through Louisiana and settled in Southeast Texas. The Dutch, Danes, Polish, Czechs, Norwegians who also came here brought with them their ways of life and they all became bound together to become part of Texas. By the year 2000, Texas was made up of 54.5% Anglos, 31% Hispanic, 11.4% African Americans and another 3.1% of other ethnicities. Much of what Texas is today is because of the people who settled her land. Crafts such as quilting and the Texas Star pattern, dance like the Cotton-Eyed Joe and even the way Texans still hunt today can be traced back to the Middle Ages.

"Who joins [the Populist movement], and why, and, conversely, why do others similarly situated not join?" This is the question, Robert McMath contends in American Populism: A Social History, 1877-1898, "that has preoccupied scholars who have studied the movement."

He relates Populism to the "rhythms of family and community life" of the rural Plains, South and Mountain West, where this movement took root in the "social and economic networks of rural communities, not, as some would have it, among isolated and disoriented individuals."
Navajo Shavonda McClennon Cultural Anthropology Dr. Newton February 6, 2012 The Southwestern United States is famous for it’s fascinating and enchanting land and the people who live there. Many different native people including the Paiute, the Zuni, the Apache, the Havasupai, the Yavapai, the Pima, the Maricopa, the Papago, the Tewa, and the Hopi, live and work in the area. Many of these tribes are known as the Pueblo Indians, a name obtained from their custom of living in apartment-style adobe dwellings. By observing these natives the Navajo people learned valuable ways to survive in the harsh desert. This ability has helped the Navajo to remain a powerful nation that it is today.
