Both of my parents were born in East L.A, but my grandma from my mom's side of the family was born in a city in Mexico know as Chihuahua. My grandma from my Dad's side was born & raised in El Paso Texas, but I don't know when her family moved from Mexico to the US so I will be talking more about the culture in Chihuahua.
Stews are a common food in the culture of Chihuahua. They are prepared with vegetables, potatoes, beans, corns, wheats, chickpeas, & several different types of chilies. Having meats combined with these stews make delicious dishes such as; picadillo, calillo, cocido and many different other stews. Other than the stews, the vegetables, fruits and many more types of food are eaten dry.
In Chihuahua, art is something that's big & plays great importance there, as it gives the city it's beautiful personality. The material commonly used to make these arts are clay, adobe & unique handmade textiles. A lot of these art pieces are muruals & clay pots. They usually just show a little bit everything, from faces of the people of the town, to random animals that roam the lands.
The music in Chihuahua has been included a lot by Polka music & customs from Eastern Europe. Polka was originally a Czech dance, that originated in the 19th century & has been passed through Europe & the Americas over time. The accordion, bass guitar, and drums are some of the instruments that are used for Polka music.
