Mexican Americans is a plural subject. So it is "view".

The word "view" may be a bit tricky if English is not your native language.  It can be used as either a verb, such as in this sentence, or as a noun - in which case, of course, it aquires an s when it is plural.

 

"The Mexican American views on the festivities are varied."
