Cholo Style.  Homies, Homegirls & La Raza, a book by Reynaldo Berrios and Mi Vida Loca Magazine with Illustrations by Victor A. Spider. 
“Cholo is a term that has been applied to individuals of mixed American Indian ancestry, or other racially mixed origin; its precise usage has varied widely in different times and places…  In modern usage in the United States, the term “cholo” usually indicates a person of Mexican or Mexican-American descent, who is associated with a particular Southwestern culture.” en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cholo
