vieenviolet said: I just saw all those comments about Mexicans having Asian ancestry and I felt the need to mention that I have been asked multiple times if I am Japanese or have some Asian ancestry because of my last name. I don't no one in my immediate family that is Asian. However, I have met various Asians that have similar last names as mine or spelling. So who knows maybe hundreds of years ago there was one Asian man that emigrated to Mexico. BTW my last name is Tinoco.
Just another example of how diverse and rich the Mexican culture is. And we’re only talking about the Asian influence in Mexico, there are other countries that make up our beautiful people. :)
To elaborate on your previous answer this graph should help: http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m1t2tv3vyB1r0bqbdo1_1280.jpg (sorry if you guys have to cut and paste to view the link -.-) anyway our early ancestors did come from Asia at some point, which is pretty clear if you look at most of the indigenous people of Latin America they have certain features (like the Epicanthic fold aka “asian eyes” ) that do make them look somewhat Asian.
Also yeah, there was a large influx of Asian (mostly Chinese & Japanese) immigration into countries like Mexico in the late 19th and early 20th century
Thankyou! This helps :)
