Take a trip through the Smithsonian Latino Virtual Museum or try your hand at papier-mâché masks.


From Sept. 15 to Oct. 15, the United States recognizes the contributions, culture, and heritage of the Hispanic and the Latino community.

  1. Visit the Smithsonian Latino Virtual Museum. It also includes a teacher toolkit, score!

  2. Make your own Ponce Carnival Mask using papier-mâché.

  3. In 1975, Hermosillo, Mexico became Phoenix’s first sister city. Learn more about the city here and apply to be a future ambassador.
