Our Culture

East L.A. Culture

Our culture begins with the closeness and caring of our families. Family Life has, and will always be, important to our community. Values like respect, decency, honesty, hard work, loyalty and being principled are but a few of the lessons taught and learned that reflect who we are. Family, Education, Music, Dance, Food, Local History, Street Art and Traditions are the cornerstones of life in East Los Angeles.

The video below is merely a tribute of East L.A. culture. It is not intended to reflect the vast richness of our communities whose richness in diversity and the Arts, have made L.A. one of the most fabled cities in the World.
