Transcript Funny how people 'round these parts tell people of different backgrounds 'to go back where they came from.' Well, where Mexican Americans are concerned, they are in their homeland-Tejas, what was once a part of Mexico. Sure, we all know our Texas history. Remember the Alamo? Here in Cougar Country...Houston to be exact, city of diversified people, celebrations of many cultures are a constant. People who are in touch with their cultural heritage tend to celebrate their history with special traditions. Routinely, Chicano Week has been celebrated at UH for more than 20 years, Mexican American Studies Director Tatcho Mindiola said. Chicano Week is celebrated the week of September 16, the day on which Mexico won its independence from Spain. Mindiola said, it is amazing a negative light, yet these same people are probably the ones who pack Mexican food restaurants on the weekends. Latino Heritage Month has been celebrated at many other universities said Russell Contreras, president of the newly formed Hispanic Student Association. He said the group members felt that it was about time to celebrate the month-long series of events. For the first time, all Latin organizations unified as the Hispanic Student Association, an umbrella group which includes the Mexican American Student Organization. Cuban Friend ship Committee as well as the Hispanic based sorority Kappa Delta Chi. Kappa Delta Chi president Claudia Balderas said that the Fiesta Patrias parade was the highlight ol Latino Heritage Month "The turnout was one of the largest ." Balderas said. "The excite ment of marching and chanting sparked continued on page 45 responses from the spectators who livened up as the parade nearly ended." Balderas said that she did not expect such an active crowd. "It's the greatest feeling to have the crowd cheering as we passed down the parade route." "The parade turned out to be a bonding moment for the sorority and the other groups as well," Balderas said. "We won third place!" In addition to the parade, on- campus events included performances by Ballet Folkorico dancers, Mariachi Contenetal, Unos Dos Trios and Linda Ronstandt. Chicano Month concluded president, Belen Robles, who addressed crucial Latin issues. Contreras said that the turn out for many of the events not only attracted Latinos but, "there were all sorts of people, the events were well received by Non-Hispanics." "I'm very proud that the month long celebration was a success," Contreras said. "We hope HSA will become a big force, as a result of this reception, in the future."
