Project Overview

The Latino population in Minnesota has grown dramatically since 1980, both in the Twin Cities and in Greater Minnesota, in cities such as Worthington, Willmar, St. James, Moorhead, Melrose, Long Prairie and Albert Lea. This project involves interviewing Chicano-Latino elders and community leaders from approximately a dozen Latino population centers in the state. The interviews will be available on the Society's web site, providing a baseline for understanding the current composition of Latino populations, their successes and challenges and the evolution of their relations with the broader community. More than 30 interviews were completed and transcription, editing, photo scanning and related activities are underway.
