Author of "El Gaucho Martín Fierro", a masterpiece of Argentine literature, José Hernández is one of the most representative figures of national culture, because through his writing he knew how to immortalize the life of the gaucho, his customs, language and experiences. According to etymology, the word tradition derives from the Latin "traditio" and the verb "tradere" and means to transmit or deliver.
There are political management actions that define traditions, as is the case of the declaration of the Tradition Day on November 10 - date of birth of José Hernández - and thus make the gaucho customs a common past for the whole country.
