Latino and Hispanic Terminology
According to the world’s definition, Hispanic and Latino are often used interchangeably though they actually mean two different things. Hispanic refers to people who speak Spanish and/or are descended from Spanish-speaking populations, while Latino refers to people who are from or descended from people from Latin America. NHLAD want to respect everyone that want to be identified as individual.
