SELCO_large_posterTHANK YOU, SELCO!

April 2014—For the next three years, SELCO Community Credit Union has agreed to continue to be the community sponsor for the Latino Roots Project.

Latino Roots Panels on Display

The Latino Roots in Oregon panels are on display at Springfield High School during the months of October–December 2011. These fifteen portable wooden panels—bilingual in Spanish and English—contain stories and photographs about seven immigrant families.

The panels were on display for more than a year at the Lane County Historical Museum (January 2009 through March 2010), and were part of the exhibit “Changing Demographics: The People of Lane County.” They were most recently on display at the Eugene Public Library (summer 2011).

The Latino Roots panels feature a timeline of Latino presence in what is now the state of Oregon beginning in the 1700s, maps, demographic information, information about Latino youth, and the stories of seven families who came at different times to Lane County from California, Texas, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, and Chile. A research team led by CLLAS director Lynn Stephen (Anthropology, Ethnic Studies) created the panels. The team included Gabriela Martínez, Patricia Cortez, Guadalupe Quinn, Mauricio Magaña, Sonia de la Cruz, Kate Williams, Lukacs Nguyen, and Magali Morales.

The Latino Roots Project is administered through the Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies (CLLAS) and is a part of the “Americas in a Globalized World: Linking Diversity and Internationalization” big idea at the University of Oregon. Selco Community Credit Union is the community sponsor.

THANK YOU, SELCO!

We’re pleased to announce a $12,500 grant from SELCO Community Credit Union in support of the Latino Roots project administered by the UO Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies and in support of Diversity Excellence Scholarships for UO students.

On display for more than a year at the Lane County Historical Museum (January 2009 through March 2010), these fifteen bilingual (Spanish/English) panels (approximately three feet wide and five feet tall) were part of the exhibit “Changing Demographics: The People of Lane County.” The Latino Roots panels feature a timeline of Latino presence in what is now the state of Oregon beginning in the 1700s, maps, demographic information, information about Latino youth, and the stories of seven families who came at different times to Lane County from California, Texas, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, and Chile. A research team led by CLLAS director Lynn Stephen (Anthropology, Ethnic Studies) created the panels. The team included Gabriela Martínez, Patricia Cortez, Guadalupe Quinn, Mauricio Magaña, Sonia de la Cruz, Kate Williams, Lukacs Nguyen, and Magali Morales.

These panels have been displayed since in several locations, including the Jordan Schnitzer Art Museum, the EMU, and the HEDCO Education building. They are available to schools and libraries by request and arrangement. For more information, contact cllas@uoregon.edu.
