Donde está mi corazón. The Ethno-cultural Adscription Of First-generation Teenagers of Central American Descent Born in Canada
This article presents the results of an exploration of the ethno-cultural adscription of a group of first generation Canadian teenagers, aged between 12 and 18, from families of Central American origin who migrated as refugees to Canada during the 1980s. Based on identity negotiation theory (Ting-Toomey, 2005), participant observation, and inquiry conducted through interviews, three forms of ethno-cultural adscription can be observed: negotiated, marginal, and assimilated.
