Las Vegas is where I was born and raised. That doesn’t mean that I just gave up on my Mexican culture. Like many others, I have a culture that is both American and Mexican. My culture has shaped my values, perceptions, and behaviors. The culture of my family, community, and society has made who I am as a person in numerous ways.
Olvera is very familiar with how the Mexican society/culture effects it speaking norms.On Oct,3,2015 we discussed what main characteristics were found in the contents of Mexican speeches and how exactly the apply their culture into their speeches.We also discussed the similarities/differences of the American culture.There are many different aspects the play a role in how culture affects its speakers. First of all, Family is first priority in Mexico, children are celebrated, the wifes fulfill domestic roles, & the mobility,which means families stay usually stay in one place. In the United States the family is second to work, children are independents, the wife often fills different roles, & mobility is common in america.

Gonzalez explained in his poem how it feels to be Mexican and living in a world filled with just white faces. He opened a lot of eyes. He made many people who are from mexico to feel a lot comfortable about being Mexican in the United States. Making my parents one of them, they stand proud for many years. Encouraging others to be proud of their culture.
It has its origins in the “saya”, from the Yungas region North of La Paz. It’s almost the same as the saya but the costumes worn and the meaning of the dance are different. This well-known traditional Bolivian dance parodies the mulatto overseers who managed the large Colonial haciendas on behalf of their Spanish and creole owners; because of this, the whip and the clothing that was traditionally used by the landowners are part of the dance
To many immigrants, America is seen as a place where they could start over with an equal chance of success or failure, no matter what country he or she came from. My informative name is Julio Acevedo. I had Sunday dinner with him and his family. I was not prepared to have dinner, but it is part of their traditions to feed their guest. Plus I did not want to offend anyone by refusing their hospitality.
They understand the sacrifices their parents have made for their children and to support their family. But, upper classmen might not be able to understand why inequality causes consequences because they do not experience the same situations. Those who earn more do not need to work more hours and sacrifice little things, such as vacations, in order for their children to go to school. They may not even notice any changes to their lives because they make more than enough to live stress-free, while low income families spend most of their time struggling to make ends meet. Although this essay was written about 11 years ago, I believe it is still just as effective as when it was first written because the economy is constantly changing and always leads to consequences because of the inequality present in society.
In today’s world, it is in the best of interest of not only today, but the future. We are often asked if we want to turn out to be like our parents. Money is included in this question and that is why working now—even while going to school—will prepare me for the future. I have the opportunity to move up in class, be in a better place financially than my parents, and eventually pay my parents back for everything they did for me. While it will take some time, it will be worth
We feel kinship and take pride with and in our people. Unfortunately, it’s not always a universe blanket pride; discrimination definitely still runs rampant, but it’s a strong pride nevertheless. My daily and domestic practices only somewhat reflect my cultural identity. I’ve made two conscious decisions involving food; the first was to enjoy pork even though my mother didn’t allow it in the house, and to minimize the amount of sugar I put in my body. So in terms of food choices, in a way I don’t really reflect my cultural identity.
I share the stereotypes of loving to cook, as well as having giant family get-togethers, as well as some others, but I did share the volume that I notice most of my family had when discussing. I have been told that I am very soft spoken, quiet and shy, which makes me stand out sometimes when I am at these family parties. I am usually just the person who is listening instead of trying to talk over everyone, which is why everyone ends up with such a loud volume on a normal basis. I have also been told that I could not possible be a part of the family, because I do not have some of the same stereotypes that are stuck with my family. This makes Markus statement true about identity, that “a person’s identity depends on her own view of herself, but it also depends on others’ views of her” (Markus 180).
However, as he was in college he soon found his love for history about the civil rights, anti-war movements, and politics. The courses he teaches at Colorado College are Recent U.S. History classes (1943-1973) and classes that have to deal with the Southwest specifically (Mexican War and Spain and Mexico.) The book sequences in a chronological order because it talks about how Mexican immigrants lived
This makes the children want to work harder and worry about money because he is their primary source of income and the support that they receive. A lot of the times during work when they are out there they will be forced to skip a meal, but they do not usually complain they just keep working in order to help out. In the one part of the video you see the family taking a break and the one kid asks, “did we even eat yesterday” and someone else replies that there was too much work to take a break. Although a lot of the children do not wish to be working in the field, they all aspire to be able to finishes schools that they may find a new way of income to help support their families. Even though they all tend to be working to bring in money the main idea I think that they all share is that they will do anything for their families and them all being together is what matters most.
