Puerto Rico
Puerto Rican culture is a mixture of Spanish, African and Ta­no traditions overlaid with a century-thick layer of American influence. At times, parts of San Juan can seem like any US city with a large Latino population, but dig a little deeper or get into the countryside and you'll find a complex Creole culture that certainly won't be erased by the arrival of Budweiser and Burger King. The intermingling of cultural influences is so pronounced that nothing on Puerto Rico is ever one-dimensional. Spanish is the island's main language, though the local version contains plenty of English, Amerindian and African words. Roman Catholicism is the main religion, but it's infused with spiritualism, Indian and African folkloric traditions. The music you hear on Puerto Rico's streets may sound like it originated in the 'hood, but la bomba and la plena , featuring call-and-response dialogues and satirical lyrics sung in high, plaintive voices, are distinctly African, and salsa hails from ©migr©s in New York. Out of boombox range, typical Puerto Rican instruments include maracas

Country Info Puerto Rico Introduction Puerto Rico General Data Puerto Rico Maps Puerto Rico Culture ... Puerto Rico Time and Date Puerto Rico Culture Back to Top Modern Puerto Rico is generally well-off by Latin-American standards. Beginning in the 1940s, a political coalition between the Puerto Rican leader Luis Muñoz Marín and the U.S.-appointed governor, Rexford Guy Tugwell, was forged to promote a self-help program, called “Operation Bootstrap,” of economic development and social welfare. In a little more than four decades, much of the territory's crushing poverty was eliminated. This was done partly through emphasis on the development of manufacturing and service industries, the latter related to an enormous growth in tourism. Improvements have been made largely with the cooperation of the United States, but relationships with that country have also become a focal point of political turmoil. Various factions have bitterly disputed the political status of the island, and, although a majority voted to retain its commonwealth relationships, strong minorities have continued to push for statehood or—at times with violence—independence. Puerto Rico’s mild climate and sandy beaches make it a popular recreation area, especially for swimming, fishing, boating, tennis, and golf. Both horse racing and cockfighting attract many spectators. Baseball, basketball, and boxing also are popular sports in Puerto Rico.

Culture and History Grades 4-Adult 3 books on Latino history – written by scholars from within the cultures! Written by authors who grew up in Cuban, Dominican, and Puerto Rican cultures, these three books in the Peoples Voice series – Cuba: Culture and History Dominican Republic: Culture and History , and Puerto Rico: Culture and History – tell the story of these countries with respect and dignity. Too often the proud histories of these countries have been misrepresented in – or even omitted from – many "standard" U. S. History courses; a glaring omission, given the number of people living in the United States who are of Cuban, Puerto Rican, or Dominican descent. The Peoples Voice texts can be used as a supplement to any U. S. History or World Cultures course or as stand-alone texts. Packaged together at a special price, the texts provide a clear view of what these Hispanic/Latino cultures have meant in the history of the United States and world history. Each book in the Peoples Voice series has several keys features to help students learn and comprehend what they are reading. Each chapter ends with Content Questions, Critical Thinking Questions, Enrichment Exercises, and Writing Assignments.

The rum bottle in front of him almost empty, Jacobo Morales is approaching the end of a rambling stage monologue on what it means to be Puerto Rican. Earlier he had toasted "the great American nation, of which I'm proud to be a citizen." But with this most recent toast his mood has turned militantly nationalistic: "What I am is Ameri . . . Puerto Rican!" And then another turnabout. "Puerto Rican and Ameri. . . . What I am is a

9. The Cultural Role Of Cable TV In Puerto Rico
We acknowledge that our interest in this topic was inspired by a reading of Nancy Morris s book, puerto rico culture, Politics, and Identity.
The Cultural Role of Cable Television
in Puerto Rico Puerto Rico was a Spanish colony from 1493 through 1898, at which time it came under the control of the United States. Throughout the twentieth century, the United States played a major role in all aspects of Puerto Rican life - government, economy, education, culture, etc. There is considerable debate about what the relationship between Puerto Rico and the United States should be. Politically, there are three major streams of thought: national independence, statehood within the United States and the continuation of the commonwealth status. This debate extends beyond the political realm to the cultural one as well. In Puerto Rico, television penetration is nearly universal (99%). Since the population base is relatively small, Puerto Rico is not self-sufficient in terms of television program production. Local productions are mainly news and variety entertainment programs. Many of the television programs are imported, some of which are telenovelas from Mexico and Venezuela but mostly programs from the United States. On broadcast television, programs from the United States are usually dubbed in Spanish. On cable television (which is present in 29% of all Puerto Rican households), the situation is more complicated. Geographically, Puerto Rico is situated in the footprints of satellites directed towards the United States. This means that Puerto Rico cannot receive the Spanish-language satellite signals that are beamed towards Latin America. Consequently, Puerto Rican cable television has mainly English-language channels that were originally intended for United States audiences, such as the Discovery Channel, USA Network, ESPN etc, but not their Spanish-language counterparts. Puerto Rican cable households also receive the signals from US-based broadcast stations such as

Leisure Activities in Puerto Rico
On the beach in San Juan, Puerto Rico (photo credit: Pablo Verdin) During the beginning of the Industrial Era, work was a long daily ordeal that often lasts over 14 hours a day year round. The notion of paid vacation was non-existent and holidays were rare. Free time and therefore leisure activities were unimaginable. Things began to change with the modernization of the industrial society, as technology improved productivity and workers gain more bargaining power through their technological skills. Today, in Puerto Rico, it is not uncommon to have a five-day work week of eight hours per day, in addition to a number of paid vacation days during the year. Another major difference between the Industrial Era and today is that one may be longer compelled to work in order to put bread on the table and pay the rent. Nowadays people may consider their leisure time to be an important decision factor in choosing their work. Thus, one may be willing to earn less money by working fewer hours in order to have more leisure time on hand.

The culture of Puerto Rico is greatly influenced by the Caribbean, Spain and the United States. There is the old culture and the energy-filled new culture found on that island. There are beautiful picturesque views of waterfalls, underground river caves, forests, bays, reefs and offshore islands with white sandy beaches. The countryside is impressively beautiful with its highland villages and calm looking seaside towns. Sugar cane is one of the most prolific crops there along with coffee and fruit trees. Puerto Ricans are a proud, vivacious, outgoing and warm people who actively support their culture through museums, folklore, artwork, literature and music. Columbus came to the island of Puerto Rico on his second voyage in 1493. The Taino Indians had settled there a couple thousand years before that, yet he claimed it for Spain and called it San Juan Bautista. The Spanish returned to Puerto Rico and decimated the Taino Indians with diseases and murdered thousands. After that Spain renamed the island from San Juan Bautista to Puerto Rico. Traces of the Taino's settlements and remains of their ceremonial ball courts can still be found in many places throughout the island.

Weddings in Puerto Rico Throughout history there have been interesting similarities in the wedding traditions all around the world, but there are also some differences in the way they get married and celebrate such event. One unique characteristic of a Puerto Rican wedding is the bridal doll. A bridal doll, in a dress identical to the brides' gown, is usually placed on the head or center table with souvenirs attached to its dress. During the reception, the bride and groom will walk to each person and thank him or her for their presence at the nuptials. Each person is then pinned with a souvenir, some people in return pins dollars into the doll's dress. ref.

Puerto Rico Culture
Puerto Rican culture is somewhat complex, -others will call it colorful. Culture is a series of visual manifestations and interactions with the environment that make a region and/or a group of people different from the rest of the world. Puerto Rico, without a doubt has several unique characteristics that distinguish their culture from any other.
Lets consider that the people of Puerto Rico represent a cultural and racial mix. During the early 18-century, the Spaniard in order to populate the country took Taino Indian women as brides. Later on as labor was needed to maintain crops and build roads, African slaves were imported, followed by the importation of Chinese immigrants, then continued with the arrival of Italians, French, German, and even Lebanese people. American expatriates came to the island after 1898.
Long after Spain had lost control of Puerto Rico, Spanish immigrants continued to arrive on the island. The most significant new immigrant population arrived in the 1960s, when thousands of Cubans fled from Fidel Castro's Communist state. The latest arrivals to Puerto Rico have come from the economically depressed Dominican Republic. This historic intermingling has resulted in a contemporary Puerto Rico without racial problems.

18. Puerto Rico's Culture: Music
the rich variety of folk music with roots in the cultural melting pot of the island s Spanish, African, and Taíno traditions. Classical Music in puerto rico.
One of Puerto Rico's notable exports is its music, which is probably the predominant Caribbean music heard in the United States. , or , a notched hollowed-out gourd, which was adapted from pre-Columbian days. The musical traditions of the Spanish and Africans can also be heard in Puerto Rico's music. At least four different instruments were adapted from the six-string Spanish classical guitar: the requinto , the bordonua , the cuatro , and the triple , each of which produces a unique tone and pitch. The most popular of these, and one for which greatest number of adaptions and compositions have been written, is the cuatro , a guitar-like instrument with 10 strings (arranged in five different pairs). The name (translated as "the fourth") is derived from the earlier instrument having four (or four pairs of) strings, but for aims of century 19, around year 1875, already it was custom to make it with five pairs of cords as we know it today. Usually carved from solid blocks of laurel wood and known for resonances and pitches different from those produced by its Spanish counterpart, this instruments graceful baroque body has been revered for decades as the national instrument of Puerto Rico. Also prevalent on the island are such percussion instruments as tambours (hollowed tree trunks covered with stretched-out animal skin)
