Revisiting Aztecas del Norte with Spirit
In conjunction with the Jack Forbes Memorial, this plática will be a collective intergenerational, multi-lingual space where the legacy Dr. Forbes theorized in Aztecas Del Norte: The Chicanos of Aztlán will be critically discussed and engaged by elders, scholars, relatives, and the UC Davis community. A series dedicated to highlighting and honoring Intergenerational dialogue and conversations focused on multiple manifestations of Indigenous Knowledges (Sabiduría Indígenas) for Chicana/os, Xicanx, and Indigenous communities across the Hemisphere. Storytelling, Spirit work, and Indigenous-centered pedagogies are methodologies that allow for productive engagement by all in order to facilitate praxis that leads to deeper consciousness or a path of conocimiento (Anzaldúa 2015). These events intentionally center ceremony and healing in a respectful form.
