Many people coming from Spanish speaking countries are of Native heritage, or of mixed Native and European heritages. Most of these people have a very distinctive ethnic and racial appearance that is different from other races and ethnicities.

Unidos Us is an organization that started in the mid to late 20th century. It revolves around the hardships and plights of Latino Americans.
They previously referred to themselves as The National Council of La Raza, on a formal basis. However, they formally made a name change to Unidos Us, to have a fresh, new look. It is feasible think that it also may have been done to sound less harsh and to avoid any negative connotations.
