Join us in celebrating independence around the world with a community potluck. We invite our ancestors to the table. Share in the wealth of nutritional knowledge and practices that exist within our community. Please bring a main dish or a side dish that is made using whole ingredients from the richness and wisdom of your culture. Do not forget to bring the recipe!
Los Cenzontles (Nahuatl for “The Mockingbirds”) dig deep into Latino traditions to promote dignity, pride, and cultural understanding. The group has pioneered revivals of Mexican roots music in California, bringing traditions to new generations. They now create a powerful new hybrid sound, creating a fresh Chicano voice for a new generation.
