Hi, I am a student at Washington State University, and have been assigned to do an oral presentation on Portuguese in America. I was told by my professor that people on this forum may be a great source of information. I'd appreciate any input. Here are some things I am looking for: When and why did the bulk of Portuguese emigrate? What do Portuguese do to maintain their identity in the United States? Have the Portuguese undergone any harsh pdistrust of prejudice in the US? Are there any athletes, politicians, actors, or other notable Portuguese that the Portuguese people honor? Do Portuguese live, worship, invest, etc. together? Any information would really help me out a lot; it doesn't even have to be about the above questions. My presentation is due tomorrow morning (yes, short notice!). Thanks. -Dan P.
