What is “Latin” America? (3/4) Despite their differences, Latin America's various peoples succeeded in living and working together for hundreds of years. Over the centuries, whites, Indians, and blacks intermarried. In the 1800's and 1900's, Arab, Asian, French, German, Italian, and Jewish immigrants contributed their own cultural traditions to Latin America. Today, most Latin Americans are of mixed ancestry. They are chiefly of Indian and white descent or of black and white descent. The people of Latin America share many traditions and values that spring from their common colonial heritage. The majority of Latin Americans speak Spanish, Portuguese, or French, each of which developed from Latin.
