A lot of the people in this region are from Mexico so Mexican traditions and beliefs are practiced in this area. African Americans are also found in this region so their beliefs are practiced also. Not only are they practiced in this region but they can be found in different parts all over the United States and Canada
Other regions are dependent on the southwest for the crops they plant and trade/ sell. Most of the cotton from the United States comes from the Southwestern region. The region is close to Mexico so its less work to trade with them. They depend on Europe for the oil and gas. The region depends on South America for fruits such as oranges, bananas, strawberries, etc..
