Abstract

This interview is with Itzel Garcia, an indigenous Mexican-American who works in cultural education. Having grown up as part of a migrant family living in The Valley, Itzel speaks about how police brutality, alienation from American culture, and the legacy of colonization have all impacted her life. She shares her experience of connecting with the indigenous imagination and Mexica tradition through her work at Academia Cuauhtli, the impact that work has on her and the Latin American community in Austin, and how that work has shifted during the pandemic.
