The Quinceanera is a traditional Latin American celebration of a girls fifteenth birthday The religious practice is symbolic of a young girls transition into womanhood The frequency of the ritual in America is decreasing more and more every year The majority of the celebrations now are held for first and second generations of immigrants but rarely for the third Before long the fiesta will only be conducted for first generation immigrants Then maybe the performance in American will be completely forgotten Many of the Latin American teenagers feel as if they are trying to preserve a tradition that is destined to fail in the United States They need to understand that they are not only preserving a tradition but they are also preserving an aspect of their religion and heritage Astonishingly the amount of research that has been done on this topic is minimal The majority of the articles and books that I found were written in Spanish which made them irrelevant to me This particular subject is going to be difficult to research for this reason Therefore I plan to begin by researching Latin American culture on a broad level and the gradually narrowing the topic to la quinceanera This will involve a large amount of reading but results will include aspects of the ritual that other articles do not Hopefully the result of my research will be to create a better understanding of the ritual and its origins Also I would like to prove that the ritual promotes religion and heritage in the Latin American youth that is imperative in preserving their culture If this ceremony along with several others continues to regress at the same rate that it is now Latin Americans will soon become part of the American melting pot Hence no longer being recognized as Latin America and only as American citizens
