Comprehensive, informative, and now even easier to use, The American Mosaic: The Latino American Experience (LAE) is the latest version of the first-ever database dedicated to the history and culture of Latinos—the largest, fastest growing minority group in the United States.
Latino and Hispanics in the United States are an intrinsic part of our national identity. This enormous segment of the United States population today—comprising immigrants from dozens of Latin countries, as well as Spain—now accounts for over 15 percent of the overall U.S. population. The diversity of Latino cultures is wide ranging and their myriad cultural traditions reflect unique historical trajectories in the United States.
The American Mosaic: The Latino American Experience (LAE) explores the rich heritage and current culture of Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Guatemalans, Cubans, Dominicans, Colombians, Ecuadorians, and other Hispanic cultures in the United States—an estimated 44 million individuals who have formed unique, self-sufficient, and vibrant communities across the nation.
