Abstract

This study looks at the perceptions and attitudes of Mexican bracero laborers during the era of the Bracero Program (1942-1964). Through the song lyrics of 14 corridos (songs), this study examines how particular nationalistic character traits were embodied in the braceros' sense of identity.
