Whyyy, hello there . . .

I guess everyone here who have joined the community, though haven't posted yet, are interested in multiculturalism in one way or another. Or maybe just one culture? Either way, I think this community needs a little jump start. How 'bout we all introduce ourselves? ... Me first: I'm 1/2 Anglo, 1/2 Mexicana. I'm super-proud of my ethnic origin, and I'm in love with the fact that I am a direct descendant of the Purhépecha (Tarascan) Indians of Michoacán. :) I've had some trouble before dealing with the fact that there is inevitably some Spanish blood, but I got through that well enough. I'd really like to hear what all of you out there have to say about yourselves, about your cultures, or about anything that's out there that I don't know about. :)

Let's get posting!!

Wow, I totally forgot about this place. And I'm the one who started it!!


Ok, right.

I'm 1/2 Russo-Polish, 1/4 Dutch West Indian and 1/4 Venezuelan. Like my buddy Rosario, I'm very, very, very proud of my heritage, most particularly my Venezulean blood, because my family has been making headlines as anti-Chavistas in the embattled country. Both the DWI and Venezuelan strains come from almost-pure Spanish clans (albiet with some mixing, of course) who arrived in the Americas in the 1650's. For a very long while I considered myself a Spaniard, but because of the long time spent away from the motherland I figured that it would make more sense to identify more with the New World alligiences.
