Why did it take New Mexico so long to become a state?
Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo
Also called the treaty of peace, this ended the Mexican-American war. With the defeat of Mexico's army, they opened negotiating grounds and Mexicans annexed their grounds and the people could choose to move or become american citizens.
Compromise of 1850
The Compromise of 1850 was a package of five separate bills passed by the United States Congress in September 1850, which defused a four-year political confrontation between slave and free states regarding the status of territories acquired during the Mexican–American War.
The Gadsden Purchase
The Gadsden Purchase (known in Mexico as Venta de La Mesilla, "Sale of La Mesilla") is a 29,640-square-mile region of present-day southern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico that was purchased by the United States in a treaty signed on December 30, 1853 by James Gadsden who was the American ambassador to Mexico at that time.
Native Prejudice
People, in what would now be new Mexico, were seen as "others" they had "uncivilized" cultures and this led to the United States viewing these new territories as untrustworthy and creating boarding schools for the native americans.
Common trade items were platess and woven blankets
Spanish trade in New Mexico
Spanish records indicated that they traded with the Pueblos and various bands or tribes participated in the Southwestern Revolt against the Spanish in the 1680s.

The movement for independence was inspired by the Age of Enlightenment and the liberal revolutions of the last part of the 18th century. By that time the educated elite of New Spain had begun to reflect on the relations between Spain and its colonial kingdoms
January 6th, 1912
Wrap it all up!
New Mexico was held back statehood because of many different factors, but mostly the fact that we and our people are seen as "others" the "outsiders", which distanced us from the new government and society that was forming.
