Throughout history, the American population has been defined by its history. Initially, the term “Mexican” referred to all people of Spanish descent. However, in the 1970s, the U.S. Census Bureau started asking people of Latin descent to self-identify, and now ask them to choose one of six categories. The mistake led to hundreds of thousands of white Americans being incorrectly classified as Central or South American.
Today, almost four-in-five Latinos are U.S. citizens. Most Hispanics are natives of Mexico, but not all Latinos are of Mexican descent. In fact, some Brazilians are Latinos, even though their native language is not Spanish. In addition to Mexicans, Puerto Ricans are also part of the United States’ ethnicity, with roughly 5.7 million people. Moreover, Colombians and Guatemalans are also a significant number of the Hispanic population in the U.S.
Whether you’re looking for a place to spend your vacation or are searching for a way to honor your heritage, there are many places to celebrate it. In fact, a number of museums feature collections of Hispanic culture. A trip to the Smithsonian will allow you to experience a world of art that will inspire you. A museum exhibit about Hispanic heritage is the perfect opportunity to learn more about the culture and history of the United States.
