For example, tourism and bingo have been the places where they have received a lot of profit. The money they earned is sometimes used to enhance their reservations throughout Florida. The Seminoles provide schools in some of their reservations and also get the attention of tourists by having tours of their land. They also get the attention of tourists by having a large casino on a reservation spot. In the beginning, the “Seminoles primary source of revenue was through trade in animal hides and crafts” (Seminole History 1).
Jonathan Cadena Yummy Ever since I was little I remember my mom making my favorite dish, pozole. Growing up in a Hispanic culture, Mexican food has been the main entre for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You would think why a Mexican dish would be my favorite food since I eat that kind of food of day. Well in our family pozole is a dish that is only made on special days such as holidays or birthdays. So when ever my mom makes pozole I look forward to it since I don’t eat weekly.
Colin Powell Colin Powel is one of the most significant African Americans of our time through his success, popularity, and leadership excellence. He has achieved greatness throughout his life in various military and governmental positions which also have lead him to who he is now. He deserves the recognition he has received since he has shown outstanding leadership qualities through countless world crises and four United States presidents. Colin Powell was born in New York City on April 5, 1937 and was raised in the South Bronx. His parents, Luther and Maud Powell, immigrated to the United States from Jamaica.
On the other hand, Houston was crowded, humid and just plain odd. But the longer I lived in Houston the more I learned about its uniqueness. In Houston there is culture, along with rodeos; champagne, along with beer and designer stores, along with Wal-Mart. Therefore there are no words to explain Houston, you have to experience it. Sometimes it seems like a different culture, but it’s a culture that many choose because it allows you to feel at home without being pretentious.
Ra Shawn Averitte February 4 2013 P.E. 179 Zumba During the 1920-50s there was a Cuban music craze around the world including in the US, especially in New York where there were many Cuban and Puerto Rican immigrants. Cuban music such as son (pronounced "sown"), guaracha, mambo, bolero and chachacha were very popular. Each of these music styles had (and still has) its own dance In New York musicians began mixing the music with jazz and it was called "Latin jazz" for many, many years. Or in many cases the musicians would put the name of the ryhthm of each inidvidual song on the record.
Just like the Irish on St. Patrick’s Day go from pub to pub, I feel proud when it is February 27th—Dominican Independence Day. I go out and celebrate to Manhattan on August 14th to march in the Dominican Parade. I feel extremely proud to be Dominican, which is why I now claim myself as a Dominican-American now. “However, there are many anecdotal instances of people adopting ethnicities when they marry or move to a strongly identified neighborhood” (235). This is another point that Waters makes in her essay that I can relate to entirely.
They wouldn’t talk in the open street: we would have to go with them to a private flat, or a subway tunnel, or anywhere else they felt safe. There they would tell us how impossible it was to live on the rations: a single bread roll a day, half a pound of chicken a week (but only if you have a child under 13), six pounds of rice and seven ounces of black beans a month to make the mixture which the Cubans call Moros y Cristianos — Moors and Christians. You get one bar of soap, one tube of toothpaste, four ounces of coffee per month, and one bottle of rum per family…Once when we were wandering around the old part of the city we knocked at a door purely at random to see if someone would speak to us. We were invited in by a young woman with the classic, dark beauty of Cuba who told us, without any hesitation and in good English, exactly why she was so sick of things here. She had, she explained, just been discussing that very subject with her boyfriend and a couple of other people, who were sitting there with her.
I have always wanted to return to Cuba, where I graduated high school. My father was a Chief in the United States Navy. The military relocated my family to the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba for five years. The base held only 5,000 people, which included both adults and children. Right from the onset, children learned the importance of following the Cuban culture and stuck together no matter our differences.
The most important contribution made by a Chinese-Jamaican was by Vincent 'Randy' Chin, who in later years went on to establish the now world-famous VP Records in New York. In the past few years there have been several studies and reports done by local, regional and international scholars and economic development experts and agencies, including more than one United Nations agency, all of which point to Jamaica's music and entertainment as the best solution for economic growth, export expansion, youth employment creation and reduction of poverty. This shows that the music has come a far way. It has evolved into an untapped resource for Jamaica and Jamaicans. Marjorie Whylie, spoke
For example, in Brazil if there are not beans my younger brother would not sit at the table and eat. He would never eat his food with no beans. My mom, my sister and I are more laid back about that, but most of the time we cook rice and beans as well, and of course
