Overview

Little Village has been known by several names over the past 140 years, but its rich culture and history have never been forgotten. Situated on Chicago's southwest side, Little Village has gone from real estate promoters Millard and Decker's affluent "suburb" Lawndale to one of the largest Bohemian enclaves in the United States. This vibrant neighborhood is known today as the largest Mexican community in the state of Illinois. Little Village has almost always been a working-class immigrant neighborhood filled with hardworking men and women who want their piece of the American dream. From residents such as martyred Chicago mayor Anton Cermak to the typical immigrant family next door, these strong-willed people have made their mark on Chicago and the rest of the world.

    Hawkkit to all

    (( This is so your leader can see it– )) I am Hawkkit from the other Leafclan. I com in peace. I ask that you consider changing your clan name in order to avoid confusion. Below I have listed suggestions that go along with your theme of "Leafclan". (( Your welcome and thanks for reading my post Mistyclaw. )) I hope you like them, I'm trying to base them on Leafclan. Here are some ideas: Cloverclan, Greenclan, Growthclan, Lightclan, Forestclan, Pineclan, Treeclan, Marshclan, Tiagaclan, Brightclan, etc. If you have another theme you want the clan name to be based on let me know. Thanks!! ‰*Hawkkit*‰
