Transcript Mexican Americans CULTURE MIXING JriOL/A! Como estas, amigos?No se que voy hacer ahora, pero manana quiero ir a la baila, vas a ir?"said Kathy Gonzales. Understanding only the basics, several students could not figure out what Kathy was talking about. For all those students who are of hispanic descent, this conversation was an everyday occurrence. Hispanics have their own little culture. Yet, students did not realize that the Mexican Americans had much more to offer. Several differ ent hispanic cultures have blended together to form the Mexican American Organization. "We all come from such different places that it is hard to come together into a united group. Some of us come from Mexico, Puerto Rico, and even as far away as South America. And with so many cultures, we have plenty to share with students who have never even heard of Peru." said Giansanti. The group y sponsored at the Westin and even at the Texaco Tower. However, only oriental and hispanic students attended. "I look forward to the day when it is not a matter of being Mexican or Filipano or Chinese. Every ethnic group has its own culture, but we all have something to offer with each other. By sharing the differences, all can become more understanding and cooperative," said Brad Vu.- Edna Lopez Dancers are a definite must for the celebration of Chicano culture.The brillant costumes are important in the dance styles.
