Arizona Latino Historic Preservation Initiative
Preserving the rich tapestry of stories and historical landmarks associated with Latinos in Arizona is a pivotal endeavor. This commitment is essential for recognizing and honoring the invaluable contributions and unique experiences of the Latino community throughout the state's history. These cherished buildings and narratives stand as tangible testaments to the enduring presence and indelible influence of Latinos, rectifying historical narratives that have often omitted or marginalized their vital role. The preservation of these cultural treasures ensures that forthcoming generations will access a more comprehensive and authentic depiction of Arizona's diverse heritage. Moreover, the assembly of these stories and sites fosters a deeper appreciation for the distinct culture and legacy of Latinos and instills a profound sense of pride and identity within the community.
This webpage forms an integral part of our ongoing initiative to amass and organize an array of resources encompassing books, publications, photographs, podcasts, websites, and more. It serves as a platform for sharing these resources with preservation enthusiasts and the wider public. It's important to emphasize that this collection is not intended to be exhaustive but rather an additional wellspring of information and opportunities for learning for those intrigued by Latino history and historic preservation in Arizona. This webpage is designed to encourage exploration and discovery at your own pace and offers an avenue for you to contribute your own knowledge to this collective effort.
