National Museum

“From the early ages, there has always been someone before us, someone we have displaced, someone who has marginalized us, someone against whom we have fought and someone with whom we’ve eventually mixed.”  Victor Hugo Acuno (Praise of Immigrant 1999)

This quote stands before the entrance to the immigrant room of the National Museum in San Jose.  Three Elon students pose with the cardboard cutouts that represent the different ethnicities of the people of Costa Rica to include the indigenous groups, the Spanish, the Africans, the Chinese and others.
