Laitin Americans (Spainyie: latinoamericano, Portuguese: latino-americano) are the citizens o the Laitin American kintras an dependencies. Laitin American kintras are multi-ethnic, hame tae fowk o different ethnic an naitional backgrunds. As a result, some Latin Americans daena tak their naitionality as an ethnicity, but identifee thairsels wi baith their naitionality an their ancestral oreegins.[32] Aside frae the indigenous Amerindian (aka Native American) population, aw Laitin Americans or their ancestors immigratit athin the past five centuries.

The specific ethnic an/or racial composition varies frae kintra tae kintra: mony hae a predominance o European-Amerindian, or Mestizo, population; in ithers, Amerindians are a majority; some are maistly inhabitit bi fowk o European ancestry; an ithers are primarily Mulatto.[33] Various Black, Asie, an Zambo (mixed Black an Amerindian) minorities are identifee'd in maist kintras an aw.[33] White Laitin Americans are the lairgest single group.[32] Thegither wi the fowk o pairt-European ancestry they combine for approximately 80% o the population,[34] or even mair.[32]

Laitin Americans an their stryndants can be foond amaist elsewhaur in the warld, pairticularly in densely populatit urban auries. The maist important migratory destiny for Laitin Americans are the Unitit States, Wastren Europe, Canadae an Australie.

Definition[eedit | eedit soorce]

Main article: Laitin Americae
Laitin American kintras (green) in the Americas

Laitin Americae (Spainyie: América Latina or Latinoamérica; Portuguese: América Latina; French: Amérique latine) is the region o the Americas whaur Romance leids (i.e., those derivit frae Laitin—pairticularly Spainyie an Portuguese, an variably French—are primarily spoken.[35][36]

It includes mair than 20 naitions: Mexico in North Americae; Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica an Panama in Central Americae; Colombie, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivie, Chile, Paraguay, Brazil, Argentinae an Uruguay in Sooth Americae; Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, an Puerto Rico in the Caribbean—in summar, Hispanic Americae, Brazil, an Haiti.

If we consider this definition strictly, we shoud consider Canadae an in pairticular Quebec as pairt o Laitin Americae. The raison ahint this is that Canadae haes French as ane o its offeecial leids alangside wi Inglis, an in pairticular Quebec is the anerlie Canadian province wi a predominantly French-speakin population an the anerlie ane whose sole offeecial leid is French at the provincial level. But this region is rarely considered so, syne its history, distinctive cultur an economy, an Breetish-inspired poleetical institutions are generally deemit too closely intertwined wi the rest o Canadae.[37]

Laitin Americae, tharefore, can be defined as aw those pairts o the Americas that wur ance pairt o the French, Spainyie, or Portuguese Empires.[38]
