Dear Primos, Family, and Friends:

May the beauty of the season, flowers and new life bring joy, hope and peace into each heart, as we remember with thanksgiving our many blessings. I certainly rejoice when I see evidence of pride in accomplishment and respect for our shared Hispanic/Latino heritage.

Woman’s month in March resulted in lots of Latina women being acknowledged, such as a huge, many group Mariachi concert in Los Angeles, a tribute to Linda Ronstadt.

An article “7 Powerful Latina Women Who Made Their Mark on History” by John Paul Brammer identifies some women to remember.

Also, Margarito J. Garcia III asked us to remember the bravery of Las Adelitas, the Mexican women who traveled with the Mexican army during the Mexican Revolution. A new Documentary
Rebel: Loreta Velazaquez Civil War Soldier and Spy is about a Latina in the US Civil War.

In this issue you’ll find current Latinas making a difference: Yuri Rodriguez (astronaut), Julissa Arce (Goldman Sachs analyst), Maribel Avila (restaurant manger), Sara Ines Calderon (writer/activist). Rosie Carbo (lifestyle writer), Lynn Alvarez (playwriter).

Teresa Valcarce (colonial history activist) expands her efforts to promote Spanish General, Bernardo de Galvez.

In California, many Latinas were recognized by State and US elected officials,
such as Rosa Barragan as Woman of the Year by California Assemblymember Ian Calderon. California State Senator Ben Hueso recognized Maria E. Garcia (educator/Chicano activist) as a Woman of the Year.

Sylvia Tillotson, descendent of Jose Antonio Navarro was the leadership behind the cenotaph (statue on opening page) now located prominently in the Texas State cemetery. California Tataviam Chief, Mary Cooke Garcia is remembered.

Accompanying his article on Filipinos in Romania, Eddie Calderon sent a photo of modern Filipinas enjoying an evening together in “Far Away Places.

In including all with a Spanish surname, as of some Hispanic heritage, I can say with confidence that our presence historically is all over the world. Do read the articles about the Spanish in Japan and Ireland.

Enjoy, Mimi
