In our journey through the city we build history and leave indelible footprints in the collective memory of the present and the future.
Current history is marked by the constant processes of mobility and displacement of people fleeing wars, social problems, and political and religious conflicts to other countries in search of new opportunities. However, cities still lack a friendly communication system with the new residents, thus creating different levels of social segregation due to lack of information.
Building better cities requires the inclusion of all residents in planning and development processes. Thus, Huellas Latinas was born as part of a need to produce scenarios for meeting and exchanging knowledge between those who are interested in the themes of the city, its elements, history, services, curiosities, culture, public spaces, natural spaces, activities and lifestyle. In addition, to highlight the important information that allows the new resident from Spanish-speaking countries to approach their new place of residence, helping to improve the processes of cultural immersion and access to information.

“Hello Luisana, I wanted to write to thank you for the activities you do with Huellas Latinas. They are really very supportive of Latinos like me who came to the city without knowing anyone. It is a more than great space to integrate and get to know the beautiful places that the city has. Thank you again because you become a guide and always a friendly smile when you are so far from the family. We can see great passion in what you do 😍. Again a thousand thanks and my admiration for that constant work.”

“Thank you Luisana for providing an opportunity to see the natural beauties that Minnesota has to offer and specifically the metropolitan area of St Paul and Minneapolis. It is important to see people like you interested in getting involved with the community and how you stated “being part of the city”. Your activities are important to show that our metro area offers endless opportunities to enjoy nature and to instill a healthy lifestyle. These activities also serve so that people who move to this area feel our welcome attitude from this that could become their new community. Thank you for all the work you do and see you in the next activity!”
