Dia De La Raza – Honoring Traditions

What’s A Dia De La Raza?

Hispanic cultures wish to distinguish their indigenous race, as the first people of North America.  As some history books teach us, on October 12, 1492, Columbus “discovered America”, but in actuality, Native American tribes and civilizations predate his famous voyage, stepping foot on the “new world” as the first interaction between Europeans and America. Later it was discovered that it was an entire new continent occupied by multi-cultures and races.
