These invented traditions had a profound impact on North American religious and ethnic relations, serving to bring elements of Catholic history within the Protestant fold of the United States national history as well as playing an integral role in the emergence of the early Chicano/a movement. Many Protestant Anglo Americans understood their settlement in the far Southwest as following in the footsteps of the colonial project begun by Catholic Spanish missionaries.

In contrast, Californios Mexican-Americans and Chicana/os stressed deep connections to a pre-Columbian past over to their own Spanish heritage.
