The Latino population of Minnesota has grown dramatically since 1980, and in particular during the period from 1990 to the present. The Latino community is one of the largest and most important in the state, and is particularly noteworthy because its growth has not been confined to the Twin Cities metropolitan area. 

The Minnesota Historical Society and the Chicano Latino Affairs Council formed a partnership to create a major project of oral history interviews with Latino community leaders statewide. The project is intended to help chronicle the history, successes, challenges, and contributions of this diverse and highly important group of Minnesotans.

LENGTH OF INTERVIEWS:  84 hours 28 minutes

TRANSCRIPTS:  2,332 pages
