La Bruja (Mexican)



Pandanggo sa Ilaw (Filipino Dance)
OMG the Mexican folk dance with candle glass is very very similar to our folk dance. I never knew about this, thanks pinai this one is really very similar. Did we get this from them or they got it from us ?

The U.S. Department of Transportation defines Hispanic as, "persons of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Dominican, Central or South American, or other Spanish or Portuguese culture or origin, regardless of race.

Equatorial Guinea was the only Spanish colony in Sub-Saharan Africa and 2 out of 3 people in the country speak Spanish (some as a second language). However Portuguese and French are also official languages. Portuguese is hispanic, but French is Latin, but not Hispanic.

So I would say given the definition used by the Census bureau the answer is yes. But immigrants from there would be lost in the statistical noise.

Portuguese is not hispanic but lusophone. Spanish, Portuguese and French are all Latins though.

I only know that 'La Bruja' is traditional folk dance in Veracruz, Mexico.

Yes. They are HISPANICS AND LATINOS.

Ceuta and Millia in the northern tip of Northern African Morrocco speaks Spanish as well.

Portuguese is NOT Hispanic. Brazilians and Haitians are NOT recognized as Hispanics or Latinos in the USA Census at all or in the USA government. The USA only is recognizing one type of Latik derived group which are Hispano Latins or Spanish speakers. It doesn't include French speaking or Portuguese speaking peoples.

Portuguese speaking peoples are NOT Hispanic. Portuguese based would be LUSITANIC.

Chavacano is a Spanish based Spanish Creole language spoken in the Phillipines. It has Spanish, Native American (Nahutl among others), Portuguese, and Fillipino influences, and some slight African influences as well.

Not all of Mexico calls it "menudo". In some parts of Mexico, they call it "mondongo", especially in places like Veracruz.

LOL. One of the dishes that I enjoy the most is chicken adobo and cassava bibingka. Good lord. God bless the individuals or people that invented that culinary delight, because it is just so good!
