Spanish 218: Latino Heritage I forms part of the Spanish Heritage Language Program, an initiative of the Department of Romance Languages designed specifically for Spanish heritage language learners, students who have a personal, familial, or community connection to Spanish.

The idea behind these short documentaries is to empower heritage learners to define their cultural heritage in their own words. With this project, students explore and share with their classmates the cultural and linguistic expertise that they, and their communities, bring to the University of Oregon. This is their conceptualization of herencia, or heritage.
