This section of WestWeb provides information about Chicanos and Chicanas in the West. Like much of the rest of WestWeb, it is constantly changing and developing. Under Texts you will find examples of primary texts, such as the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, or secondary texts, such as critical essays or historical studies. Under Resources, you will find biographies of Chicanos and Chicanas as well as other resources, such as bibliographies and teaching materials. Under Links to Other Sites, you will find a collection of links to sites dealing with various issues in Chicano history, such as land grants and immigration history. Finally, under Images, you will find both general collections which include some images of Chicano history and direct links to pictures available online.
