Mexicans are simultaneously the largest minority in the United States and the forgotten native in the Black and White World of the Southwest, specifically Northern Mexico. The Chicano Treatise is an initialization at reclaiming a lost spirit that has lingered for almost five centuries since Spain's conquest of Mexico. This work, more than just history, is a treatise on gender relationships, families, and failures of the Chicano liberation movement. Chicanos are implicitly tied to their ancestral homeland geographically, demographically, culturally, and historically. Mexican influence in the United States is much greater than has been recognized academically or politically in the past. With an open cultural identity emerging, a new hope for reclaiming a lost past is alive.
