Through our Parents' Eyes: Tucson's diverse community

Through our Parents' Eyes: Tucson's diverse community

A University of Arizona web exhibit. The Hispanic Community has been instrumental in transforming Tucson from an isolated Spanish military outpost in the late 1700's, to the bustling Southwestern city it is today. Hispanic Americans have been involved in all aspects of community affairs since the founding of the city by Spanish-speaking settlers in 1775. Indeed, much of the cultural flavor of Tucson can be traced to our Hispanic roots. This exhibit traces the history of Hispanic Americans in Tucson, explaining the strong ties Tucson has with the Spanish and Mexican cultures.
