Día del Niño

Children's Day is celebrated in different ways around the world, but it generally focuses on recognizing and honoring boys and girls. In some countries, festivals and special events are held in parks or public places, where children can participate in fun and educational activities such as games, music, drama, and sports.

 

It is also common for parents, relatives, and friends to give children toys, books, and other gifts on this day, and to prepare special meals and desserts for them to celebrate the occasion.

 

For us, Children's Day is an opportunity to reflect on the importance of protecting the rights and well-being of children around the world and to advocate for policies that promote their safety, education and well-being in general.

Soccer in Latin America is a way of life a cultural identifier which is shared amongst all aspects of family dynamics. However, here in the US it is a very expensive sport that marginalizes many low-income families. Many of which are immigrant and underserved BIPOC communities within our region. Which is why The Hispanic Business/Professional Association (Nuestras Raíces Centro Comunitario) is excited to announce the first completely free professional soccer development academy in Spokane County of ages 9-13, what we believe to be the most critical ages of technical and soccer development.

 

A program developed by professional and experienced coaches, licensed in many federations such as FMF, AFA, LaLiga, USSF, USC. There will be eligibility requirements based on income and participation in order to serve those that really want to take advantage of the program.

 

Union Futbol Club will be a community program dedicated and committed to providing equal opportunities to children and families to have access to this sport whose activity is so important for physical or mental wellbeing.

Folklorico

Ballet Folklórico de Spokane is made up of a group of dancers who perform traditional dances and dances from different regions of Mexico, using typical costumes and clothing from each region. We are interested in the interpretation and preservation of the rich cultural and folkloric tradition of Mexico.

 

Elements of indigenous, European and African dance are combined in the HBPA folkloric ballet, with each region having its own distinctive style and costumes. Here we dance from various states such as Veracruz, Jalisco, prehispanic, Yucatan and Chiapas.

 

Ballet Folklórico de Spokane performs at festivals and other cultural events in our community, being an important part of promoting and preserving Mexican culture and tradition.

Día de muertos

El Día de Muertos is a traditional Mexican holiday that honors and remembers loved ones who have passed away. It is celebrated on November 1 and 2, although in some places the festivities can start earlier and extend until November 3.

During el Día de Muertos, Mexican families build altars in honor of their deceased loved ones, decorated with offerings of food, drink, flowers, candles, and other symbolic objects. These altars are placed in homes, cemeteries, and other public places. Families also often visit cemeteries to clean and decorate the graves of their deceased loved ones. It is believed that during the Day of the Dead, the spirits of loved ones return to Earth to enjoy the food and drink offered to them at the altars.

The holiday is a time to remember deceased loved ones and celebrate the life they led. Although it is a festivity that has its roots in pre-Hispanic beliefs, today it is a celebration that involves all social classes in Mexico and is internationally recognized as one of the most emblematic festivities of Mexican culture.

Nuestras Raíces holds the largest Día de Muertos event in Spokane.
