Top Ten Worst Gangs: La Nuestra Familia

La Nuestra Familia is a Mexican American prison gang that originated in Northern California. The gang has been around since 1968 and has always been a rival of the Mexican Mafia. Many speculate that the gang was created just to deliver a blow to their rival gang. The gang focuses not just on criminal activities, but also on preserving the Chicano culture, especially while living in a society that is dominated by so many different races. La Nuestra Familia is known to control intra-prison drug and sex trades. From inside the prison, ruling gang members call to those outside of the prison, where their orders are carried out. The gang is known to kill anyone, sometimes members of the gang. Members of La Nuestra Familia are recognized as serious criminals because the gang requires a two year time period to join. La Nuestra Familia requires that all gang members put the gang above family, money, drugs, and women. Women cannot join the gang but are sometimes used for running drugs
