Latina refers to a woman who is a native of, or who descends from, a Latin American country. The term is often used to refer to the culture, heritage, or identity of people from Latin America, which includes countries in Central and South America, and the Caribbean. Latina women may have a variety of different cultural backgrounds, traditions, and experiences, and they may identify with a variety of racial, ethnic, and national identities. It is important to recognize and respect the diversity within the Latina community and to avoid making assumptions about someone based on their ethnicity or cultural background.
