How to say "My wife is a New Mexican"?

Hi! So I was just wondering, if I want to say "My wife is a New Mexican", is there a way to say "Mi esposa es una Nuevo Mexicana"? Normally I would make nueva female, but "Nuevo Mexico" is a noun, so I'm not sure. Or should I just go with "Mi esposa es de Nuevo Mexico"? Thank you for your help!

Hola Alexander,

people from Nuevo México are neomexicano/neomexicana. You can also write it with a -j: neomejicano/neomejicana. So you would say:

Mi mujer es neomexicana or Mi mujer es de Nuevo México

Saludos
