On August 14, 2000, one of our most famous and talented 21st century Latinx emerged onto the public stage: Dora the Explorer! Dora Marquez became a regular series that year on the Nickelodeon cable channel. Dora is the inspiration of Valerie Walsh Valdes, Chris Gifford and Eric Weiner. Dora is eight years old, and embarks on weekly adventures to discover new places and to assist people. She teaches her English language viewers words and phrases in Spanish along the way. Reportedly, Dora’s birth certificate and other official documents are in order, and to date, no challenges from the Trump Administration for deportation. The Dora Story was retold as a live action film in 2019.
