The first settlers of Mexico were hunters and gatherers from Asia. After the cultivation of corn, villages began to form. These villages eventually formed into the great nations of the Mayas and Aztecs. These people flourished for many years developing alphabets and new technologies. Then, Spanish conquerors came and wiped out these great nations. Mexico remained under Spanish control until the early 1800's when they gained their independence. Mexico then experienced about a century of chaos and turmoil. At one point, they were even controlled by the French. Then the Mexican Revolution happened and peaceful reforms took place that helped shape Mexico into the country it is today.
