Foreigners in their Own Land
Celebrate Hispanic Heritage month by learning more about the history of Hispanics in the US through the PBS series Latino Americans.
Episode 1: Foreigners in their Own Land.
One hundred years after Columbus' arrival in the Caribbean, Spanish conquistadors and priests push into North America in search of gold and to spread Catholicism. With the arrival of the British in North America, the two colonial systems produce contrasting societies that come in conflict as Manifest Destiny pushes the U.S into the Mexican territories of the South West.
