Seminar in Cultural Awareness - “You+Them=Us”:

The biggest communication challenges may stem from cultural rather that linguistic difference. “You+Them=Us” explores the differences in the way Latinos and Americans communicate, approach time, distance, knowledge, education, religion, political correctness, work, family, etc.

Are the terms "Hispanics" and "Latinos" the same?

Though often used interchangeably in American English, Hispanic and Latino are not identical terms, and in certain contexts the choice between them can be significant.

“Hispanic” encompasses all Spanish-speaking peoples in both hemispheres and emphasizes the common denominator of the language among communities that sometimes have little else in common.

“Latino” refers more exclusively to persons or communities of Latin American origin. While Latinos often speak Spanish there are a number of other languages and indigenous dialects that are used. The most common indigenous dialects in the Pacific Northwest are Mixteco, Triqui, and Zapoteco.
