But the origins of colonial-era Mexican culture can also be traced to Aztec, Maya, Toltec, and Olmec culture, which also greatly influenced Mexican cultural development, while foreign cultural influences generated by trade and the cultural traditions of this region’s various indigenous peoples influenced the development of colonial Mexican culture as well.
