Our Communities

Southern Arizona's history and culture is derived from the many different ethnic groups whose uniqueness is shared by all. The words of Esther Don Tang, a second generation Chinese American born in Tucson in 1917, describes it best.

"As we grew up, my 8 sisters, one brother and I not only celebrated the Chinese traditions, but the Mexican culture and American holidays. We learned the three languages, simultaneously and still enjoy and cook the ethnic foods for our families. It's really marvelous when one can select the good things in each culture."
