Title American Latinos and the Making of the United States: A Theme Study.
Publication Date Feb 2013
Media Count 414p
Personal Author T. Knowles
Abstract The relativity unknown story of Latinos in America is at the heart of this National Park Service Theme Study, American Latinos and the making of the United States. Over a year in development, the idea was launched at a forum held in La Paz, California on June 16, 2011. Shortly after, the National Park System Advisory Board constituted the American Latino Scholars Expert Panel. At the invitation of the Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, the group of ten academics agreed to dedicate themselves to crafting a historic document; one that would help the Department of the Interior and the National Park Service tell the layered story of American Latinos as an integral part of the history, culture, and politics of the United States. The group's charge was also to recommend possible Latino historic sites for recognition and to suggest ways to incorporate Latino history into the presentations and intepretations at already-existing national sites.
