Hispanic Heritage Month
By Jane Runyon

1     What does it mean to be Hispanic? Does it have to do with the color of a person's skin? Does it have to do with the place where they live? Just who are Hispanic people?
2     The answers to these questions are varied. The word Hispanic has to do with the culture of a people. Hispanic culture takes in more than 20 countries and nationalities. It started with the Spanish who came from Europe in the 1500's. It now includes people of Aztec, Mayan, and Mexican ancestry.
3     Every ten years the United States counts its citizens. This count is called a census. Not only does this census count the people, it also places them into different groups according to their ethnic background. There are white/Caucasians, African-Americans, and Hispanics to name a few. Hispanics are divided into groups by ancestry. There are Indo-Hispanics, Afro-Hispanics, Cuban-Americans, and Mexican-Americans.
