Nuestra Familia

Nuestra Familia was created in the California state prison system around 1968. Mexican-American inmates, also known as Chicano inmates, from Northern California banded together to counter their rivals in the Mexican Mafia. Another rival of Nuestra Familia is the Aryan Brotherhood. They are known to wear red bandannas and have certain tattoos. One being the bloody dagger under a sombrero and others including "NF" and "14". The number 14 stands for the fourteenth letter of the alphabet, which is N.*
