Hispanic Hertiage Month:   el 15 de Septiembre - el 15 de Octubre 2013
The term Hispanic or Latino, refers to Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin regardless of race.  According to this Census, 50.5 million people or 16% of the population are of Hispanic or Latino origin. This represents a significant increase from 2000, which registered the Hispanic population at 35.3 million or 13% of the total U.S. population.
 

National Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 to October 15) is to  recognize the contributions made and the important presence of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States and celebrate the group's heritage and culture. Hispanics have had a profound and positive influence on our country. They have enhanced and shaped our national character with centuries-old traditions that reflect the multiethnic and multicultural customs of their community.
 

start learning somthing new about hispanic culture:  let's compare and contrast traditional dancing in the hispanic culture to dancing in the united states -- here in SD, or in Garretson/ our community.

traditional dancing click here: http://artsedge.kennedy-center.org/Sites/Core/resourceCarouselPopout.html?data=/Sites/ArtsEdge/Services/CarouselService.aspx%3Fitemid%3D3fd8c913-c1a0-4556-9bd2-d1148952ceeb&ae=true&state=0|0|-1|0|false|false|0.3131105398457584|true|-1|false|false

something to think about:

the uniqueness of the style of dancing and costumes/clothing worn in the traditional Hispanic dances

what would you tell someone from another culture/country about dancing in the united states/ south dakota?

Does our country have a "traditional" dance that is promoted to other countries? if not, why?

 

IT IS IMPORTANT TO LEARN SPANISH!
