Chicanos are a people of Mexican American descent born in the United States. Our existence is defined by our social, cultural and political experience along with our heritage and historical roots.

A politically conscientious person of other Spanish, indigenous or Latino origin living in America can also call themselves Chicano.
The homeland of Chicanos is known as Aztlan.

as explained as my chicano history teacher: chicano is a mexican american that was born here, with mexican parents born in mexico. but a chicano is a well educated, well informed, part of the chicano community that strugles for equality. Chicanos feel that they could transform society by organizing around what many call Chicanismo.
Chicanos had to unite around their culture and change society by working to resolve Chicano-specific problems.
