  3. Latino/Hispanic Heritage MonthSeptember 15 – October 15 Celebrating Latino and/or Hispanic culture on the national level began in 1968 when President Lyndon B. Johnson proclaimed National Hispanic Heritage Week. In 1988, the observance was expanded in 1988 to a month-long celebration to acknowledge and appreciate the culture and traditions of U.S. residents who can trace their roots to Spain, Mexico and the Spanish-speaking nations of Central America, South America and the Caribbean. Sept. 15 was chosen as the starting point for the celebration because it is the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on Sept. 16 and Sept. 18, respectively. The term Hispanic, as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau, refers to “Spanish-speaking people in the United States of any race. On the 2000 Census form, people of Spanish/Hispanic/Latino origin could identify themselves as Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, or "other Spanish/Hispanic/Latino." More than 35 million people identified themselves as Hispanic or Latino on the 2000 Census.

  5. ¡Muy Delicioso! Cuban Food Rice and beans are the basis for many Cuban dishes. Many Cuban dishes are also flavored with sofrito, which is a mixture of garlic, tomato, onion and olive oil. Popular Cuban dishes: A cuban sandwich is a Latin American variation of the North American ham and cheese sandwich. It is believed that the Cuban Sanwichorginated in Cuba in the late 1870’s. It is still a popular dish today in Miami and many other Cuban communities in North America.

  6. La Bandera Dominicana The standard lunch of the Dominican Republic is “La Bandera Dominicana” or “the flag” La Bandera Dominicana consists of stewed meat served with rice, red beans, fried plantains and salad. ************** A Sancocho is also a popular dish in the Dominican Republic. It is a type of hearty and filling soup. It usually consists of several kinds of roots, such as cassava, yucca or possibly potatoes. Green plantain is also an essential ingredient, together with beef or chicken. *****************

  7. Recipe for Red Beans Recipe for Red beans of La Bandera Domincana • 2-3 cups of red kidney beans • 1 red onion finely chopped • 3 cloves of garlic • half tspn. of coriander • 2 tablespoons of tomato paste • 2 cups of chicken stock • salt & pepper to taste • Start by caramelizing the onions over medium heat in a little oil. Add garlic and coriander and saute for a couple minutes before adding other ingredients. I like to stew my beans for 20-25 minutes; use a potato masher to turn parts of them into a paste while they're simmering. Keep them simmering until they reach a nice creamy consistency. • Serve them mixed with the criolla (rice), the Dominican term for rice & beans is “moro”. However, in la bandera the items are usually separated into quarters on the plate – symbolizing the Dominican flag.

  8. Latin American Festivals! ¡Carnival! Carnival is a festival and celebration that is held prior to the season of Lent observed by the Christian tradition. Lent is a period of penitential observance that lasts for 40 days prior to Easter. Carnival stems fro the Latin route carne vale meaning a “farewell to meat” or “farewell to flesh” Carnivals include various parades and masquerades. Each country celebrates carnival in their own way. For instance, in Venezuela, the carnival consists of a water fight throughout the rural towns of the country.

  9. Dia de los Muertos The Day of the Dead is a celebration that has stemmed from an ancient Aztec festival dedicated to a goddess called Mictecacihuatl. In present time, The Day of the Dead corresponds to the Roman Catholic observance of All Souls Day celebrated on November 2nd. The skulls used during the day of the dead represent death and rebirth. Today people continue to use the representation of the skull with calacas, or wooden masks as well as chocolate or sugar skulls with the name of the recipient on written across the forehead. Many people believe that during the Day of the Dead, it is easier for the souls of the departed to visit the living. Small toys are brought for deceased infants and children while bottles of tequila and various other beverages are left for the deceased adults. ************

  12. Influential Latinos and Latinas

  13. Sonia Sotomayor Federal judge. Born as the eldest of two children in the South Bronx area of New York City, New York, on June 25, 1954. Her parents, Sonia and Celina (Baez) Sotomayor, were Puerto Rican immigrants who raised the family on a very modest income. Her mother was a nurse at a methadone clinic and her father was a tool-and-die worker who died when Sotomayor was only nine years old. On Tuesday, May 26, 2009, President Obama nominated Sotomayor to the Supreme Court of the United States to fill the seat of the retiring David Souter. Judge Sotomayor was confirmed by the United States Senate on August 6, 2009 on a super majority 68-31 vote. A Biographical Sketch of Sotomayor

  14. Piri Thomas Piri Thomas was born in Harlem, New York on September 30, 1928. He was the eldest of seven children. His mother is of Puerto Rican descent and his father is Cuban. Thomas' full name is John Peter Thomas. Some sources state that his parents named him Juan Pedro Tomas, but that his name was changed in the hospital to the English version of the latter. The nickname, Piri, was given to him by his mother, whom he had a very close bond with. It comes from the name of a bird called the "pirri", which is a small bird that has enough strength to wound its enemy bird by attacking its underwing. Thomas grew up in Spanish Harlem (El Barrio) at a time when lynching was still very prevalent in the United States, so the threat of racism was very real for him and others like him. As a young boy he attended public school in East Harlem, where he was forbidden to speak Spanish. Because the assimilation towards English was greater in school, Thomas began to lose some of his ability to speak Spanish. Thomas was faced with racism at school and in his own neighborhood, where he was taunted by whites and frequently called a "nigger spic". Thomas later writes of his experiences with racism in his books and in his poetry. Brief Bio of Piri Thomas

  15. Celia Cruz Celia Cruz Interview Born Celia de la Caridad Cruz Alonso, 21 October 1924, Santa Suarez district, Havana, Cuba, died 16 July 2003, New Jersey, USA. Described as the "Queen of Salsa" - just one of her several superlative epithets - Cruz will be remembered as the most influential female in the history of Afro-Cuban music. During a decade which saw the assimilation of Latin music into the US mainstream, Cruz was garlanded with several important titles, not least of which was 1995's Billboard Lifetime Achievement Award. At the end of the decade she signed to Sony, debuting for the label in 2000 with SiempreVivir?. The "Queen of Salsa" died three years later at her home in Fort Lee, New Jersey.

  16. Rick Gonzalez Rick Gonzalez Interview With a countenance that seemed to express street-smart grit, Hispanic-American actor Rick Gonzalez might have easily fallen into the trap of playing toughs time and again, as did many of his contemporaries. With an exception here and there, Gonzalez defied these expectations in the first several years of his career, racking up small roles in laudably unpredictable projects such as the wonderful Disney sports drama The Rookie (2002), the dance-themed comedy drama Roll Bounce (2005), and the Christopher Guest mockumentary For Your Consideration (as "Chillaxin' Host"). Gonzalez teamed with Steven Spielberg for a supporting role in the helmer's colossal sci-fi opus War of the Worlds (2005), and shifted gears slightly -- to the thriller genre -- for the movies Pulse and Illegal Tender. The latter gave Gonzalez his first major lead; in that film, he played a Latino man fleeing from thugs who murdered his dad.

  17. Rita Moreno Actress, singer. Born Rosa Dolores Alverio on December 11, 1931, in Humacao, Puerto Rico. Throughout her career, Moreno has broken new ground for Latinos in the field of entertainment. Moreno is perhaps best known for her work in West Side Story (1961), a modern musical inspired by Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. A versatile performer, she had to sing, dance, and handle very dramatic scenes during the course of the film. She won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of Anita, the tough, but vulnerable girlfriend to the Sharks' gang leader. Moreno became the first Hispanic actress to receive the honor. Rita Moreno Interview (first 10 min)
