Latin America consists of many different countries, including Mexico, Central America, and South America. They
also include many different cultures like Mexican, Latino, Hispanic, Aztec, Mayan, Brazilian, Peruvian, Guatemalan, Puerto
Rican, Nicaraguan, any many more.
With these cultures comes a variety of folktales, but one thing they have in common are the beautiful illustrations associated
with their culture. Colorful displays are portrayed throughout Latin America. Some of this may come from their
enjoyment of fiestas, whether it is for religious, patriotic, or some other reason, these cultures love fiestas and with the
fiestas come beautiful, bright colors.
The majority of this folktale project is centered around Mexican folktales. The Mexican culture originates from
three main cultures. They are Spanish, Indian, and Mexican. Even though there are a lot of different cultures presented,
you will see many thoughts and ideas that merge together as one. Enjoy!
