Cultural identity is fluid and changes over time. Human history is a endless migration in search of a better life. Each of us mixes the culture we came from with the culture we live in. Life changes so rapidly today that you don’t even have to migrate to be a cultural immigrant.  Think about how you would fit into the New York City of the 1970s and the New York City of today.

Our concept of cultural identity goes back no more than two or three generations. The first immigrant generation speaks the heritage language. The second generation speaks the local language and some of the parent language. By the third generation, the mother language and culture are usually lost.

Governments use culture to create a national identity that binds diverse people together into a nation. Merengue, Samba, Mariachi, and Tango were all used this way.

The last big reset of national boundaries and cultural identities came with the end of  World War II in 1945. Today demographic shifts are changing cultural identities on every continent.

New York Latin Culture explores the cultural heritage of about half of all New Yorkers. In less than a decade, we will be the majority. New York City is generally a little ahead of the United States. Latin culture matters. It matters a lot.

No immigrant wants to remake this country in the image of his birthplace. If we wanted that, we would go back. We treasure our heritage and want to be good Americans. That is the intersection of New York Latin Culture Magazine.
