The purpose of this presentation is to identify certain elements of the Islamic period of Medieval Spain (711-1492) within the context of colonial experience in northern New Spain (1521-1821). These elements are multiple Iberian-Moorish legacies and are identified in an overview of multiple aspects of colonial frontier social, political, military, and economic life.

This is a regional comparison designed to acknowledge the earlier Islamic Iberian origins of aspects that ran its cultural currents into the north of colonial New Spain. Although this is not an exhaustive discussion of the medieval Moorish cultural stream that made its way to the colonial northern frontier of New Spain, present day Northern Mexico and the American Southwest, key vestigial examples will be discussed.

The Borderlands Forum seeks to promote understanding and appreciation of the Borderlands as a cross-cultural, bi-national resource.
