PBS Alma's Way: Alma Goes to Puerto Rico

Do you know what part of the United States is in the Caribbean Sea?  Do you know where you can go to visit an actual rainforest in the USA? Do you know where in the USA you can find official documents in Spanish & English?

Answer: The island of Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 

It's true! While not one of the 50 States, Puerto Rico is a territory of the United States. It is in the Caribbean Sea, southeast of the Island of Hispaniola (where you can find Haiti & the Dominican Republic). The northern coast of the island touches the southern point of the Bermuda Triangle. The name Puerto Rico is Spanish in origin & translates as "rich port." Before the Spaniards arrived in 1493, the island was referred to by its Taino name, Boricua.

The inhabitants of Puerto Rico refer to themselves as Borinqueños. Most Puerto Ricans have mixed heritage rooted in African cultures brought over by ancestors enslaved to work the plantations; European cultures (mostly Spanish & some Italian) which was spread as Europeans immigrated to the islands following Christopher Columbus's landing on nearby Hispaniola; and the Taino culture of the native & indigenous people who have inhabited the island long before Europeans ever arrived.  

The people of Puerto Rico have a rich ethnic spirit! There are special customs, traditions, language use, vocabulary, clothing styles, foods, and way of life which make Puerto Rico a truly special place.  

As June is the national month of celebrating Caribbean American cultural heritage, it's the perfect time to explore Puerto Rico & Puerto Rican culture!  Here are some suggestions to explore Puerto Rico & it's rich culture!
