Texas A&M University-Kingsville Faculty Presenting: 

Somos TAMUK: Tamales & Community 

Tamales have always been central to Mexican/Mexican American life and community. The making of tamales represented the coming together of generations not only to share knowledge but to keep and reconstruct communities. The act of making tamales is more than just food; it is family, friends, honoring ancestors, and a sense of belonging to a history of struggle, overcoming, and perseverance.
