Immaculate Heart High School’s Latinas Unidas club kicked off Hispanic Heritage Month with a special assembly featuring tributes to Latina role models, student and faculty testimonials, and traditional dance performances.
Both student board members of Latinas Unidas and the club’s faculty moderators led the high school’s student body in a tribute to the generations of Latinx Americans who have positively influenced and enriched society. Among the portraits displayed on banners hanging inside the auditorium and later rehung outside on campus were images of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, Mexican artist Frida Kahlo and Dolores Huerta, the American labor leader and civil rights activist.
The event also featured several guest performances, including Jalisco folklorico by junior Priscilla Hidalgo, flamenco by sophomore Giada Vargas and Aztec dance by Hilda Contreras, grandmother of sophomore Isabella Moran, with her troupe, Ketzalizli Aztec Cultural Danza. The national observance of Hispanic Heritage Month began Sept. 15, and will continue through Oct. 15.
