The Hispanic population in the United States has reached 57 million, and the demographic accounts for 50% of the nations population growth between 2000 and 2014 (Flores, 2017; Kragstad, 2018). This population is very diverse and traces their Hispanic heritage roots from countries in Latin America and Spain, with Mexicans as the largest sub-population (Noe-Bustamente, 2019). Hispanics come from many different backgrounds, ethnicities, cultural norms, and, consequently, different traditions. They practice different religions, eat different foods and even speak their Spanish differently. This presentation offers a brief survey of the rich Hispanic Hetereogenous culture united by one language.
