¡Oye Mi Gente!

Before the turn of this century, there could well be more than one hundred million Latinos living in the United States of America.

As a young Latino political refugee, I came to realize that my stretched mind causes the spiritual fire that has grown inside, which allows me to embrace new hopes and aspirations. It has also motivated me to become involved with startups and turnaround projects all over this great nation, in a couple of different languages.

For centuries, diverse Latino communities have played foundational roles in building the USA and shaping its national culture. 

Our rich histories and legacies predate the nation's establishment. They are deeply rooted in this country's pursuit of democracy, freedom, multiculturalism, and economic opportunity. Their stories and perspectives deepen our understanding of the United States and what it means to be American.  

On December 27, 2020, legislation passed calling for the Smithsonian to establish the National Museum of the American Latino. The new museum will be the cornerstone for visitors to learn how Latinos have contributed and continue to contribute to U.S. art, history, culture, and science. Additionally, it will serve as a gateway to exhibitions, collections, and programming at other Smithsonian museums, research centers, and traveling exhibition services.

Como joven refugiado politico latino, me di cuenta de que mi mente estirada provoca el fuego espiritual que ha crecido en mi interior, lo que me permite abrazar nuevas esperanzas y aspiraciones. También me motivó a involucrarme con nuevas empresas y proyectos de recuperación en todo este gran país, en un par de idiomas diferentes.

Este 18 de Junio abriremos las puertas de nuestra primera galería con la exposición "¡Presente! Una historia latina de los Estados Unidos" en el Museo Nacional de Historia Americana. Para más información visita https://latino.si.edu/es
