  1. Hispanic people, like all other immigrants, retain their cultural identity for one or two generations. They speak the same language, practice the same religion, eat the same foods, celebrate holidays in the same way, and follow the same cultural mores as their ancestors.

    However, most immigrants are pretty well assimilated into the dominant culture by the second and certainly the third generations. We all keep a few of our family's customs, but these are fewer for each subsequent generation.
