My protagonist is a girl of Mayan descent. I have a few questions as it pertains to language used to refer to her, as well as to the Spanish language. From some definitions I've seen, it would be incorrect to refer to the protagonist as Hispanic, because she is descended from indigenous people of Mexico. Is that correct? Along the same lines, is the word Latina appropriate? I'm not sure I'll use either, but if I do I want to be correct. Also, her Mayan descent is along her mother's side, and her mother is a Spanish speaker. I know that in Spanish she might refer to her daughter as "miha." Am I right in assuming that is a conjunction for "mi hija?" Sort of an affectionate form? And if so, would you write it as miha or mi'ha?
