"Nuestras Voces" Events Highlight Idaho's Latino Arts, Culture And History

Nyal Ebert, 9, with Oyamel Folkloric Dancers, waits his turn to perform at Boise's Latino Fest in 2019.


Idaho’s growing Latino population has a rich culture of arts and history. In honor of that culture, the Idaho State Museum is hosting a series of virtual events — all in Spanish. The series — called “Nuestras Voces” (our voices in English) began during the COVID-19 pandemic as a way to connect Spanish-speaking Idahoans with their history in our state. 

Thursday at 6:00 p.m., the organizers of this series are putting on a new event all about dance in the Latino and Hispanic community. Idaho Matters spoke with event organizers Maria Ortega and Ceci Richardson Salvador to learn more. To register for this free virtual event, click here.
