  • Chicano/a
  • Chican@
  • Chicanx
  • Mexican American
  • Mexican nationals
  • Latino/a
  • Latinx
  • Puerto Ricans
  • New Yorkicans
  • Afro-Latino
  • Salvadoran American

TIP:  Immigration issues are core to the study of Latino communities.  You may need to use various descriptors to find the information you seek, for example:

  • Undocumented
  • Illegal
  • Out-of-Status

TIP:   For short research projects look for and use the built-in citation generators in Ebsco and PorQuest databases.
