A member of a loosely organized clique or gang in New Mexico prisons known as the Burquenos. Requisites for membership in the group include 1) former residence in, or another connection to, the city of Albuquerque, New Mexico and 2) willingness to support the group's interests above those of all others especially during violent confrontations. Gang iconography includes tattoos of a wolf paw-print when refers to the mascot and team-name of the University of New Mexico, the Lobo. The tattoo is most commonly placed on the members neck. The group was formed during the 1990's as a way to offer members protection from the dominant prison gang of the time, the Surenos. Though not a pre-requisite for membership, 90 percent or more Burquenos, the name given to members, are ethnically Hispanic.
It don't matter what hood or barrio you bang en la calle. In the Pinta, if you're from Burque, you ride Burqueno. But I'm just talking about Gente. Usually, Paisas, Natives, Mayates got their own thing. Same with White Boys. Of course, there's a few down-ass hueros on the team. Anyone else, nobodies, lames, and especially chomos, it's chale.
