Project Eñye

The central organizing principle of the project is that first-generation American Latinos or Enyes (ñ), share a distinct identity, shaped by their experience growing up between two cultures. Their “home” culture reflects the heritage and traditions of their family’s country of origin and is often in conflict with the mainstream American culture they experience everywhere else. Driving awareness of the shared Enye (ñ) experience, and giving it a name, generates a powerful sense of belonging for a population struggling to understand where they fit in.
