Cultural Knowledge: A Foundation for Educational Aspirations
Arce, Josephine
Journal of the Association of Mexican American Educators, p51-58 2009
This story describes how my immigrant parents from Mexico City transmitted their Mexican cultural knowledge to their U.S. born children to inspire us to understand the wealth of our culture. Their experiences and stories helped us to navigate as bilingual and bicultural Chicanos. We were a family that was very proud of our Mexican heritage; we knew our language, history, politics and possessed strong cultural ties. My parents used their cultural knowledge to lay the foundations for our educational pathway. Now I have passed it on to my daughter.
