Creating a Regional American Identity

Creating a Regional American Identity


(p.142) Seven Creating a Regional American Identity
La Nueva California

David E. Hayes-Bautista

University of California Press

For over 150 years, Latinos have not assimilated and disappeared the way European immigrant groups have, but they have not remained isolated and untouched by Atlantic-American society around them. Instead, Latinos have been quietly creating a regional variant of American society and identity, one that is in the process of becoming as distinctive a way of being American as is the Texan regional identity.

Keywords:   Latino as regional American identity, ethnogenesis, Latino demographic projections, California, Latino civil society, “eight waves” of historical Latino immigration to California
