nickkleeb photos downloadMy final reads for the semester. Whew!..From South Texas to the Nation was phenomenal. An informative look into the exploitation of Mexican laborers in post reconstruction America. John Weber...Our Present Complaint was...long. Dr. Rosenberg has a tremendous amount of knowledge to impart about the history and intrinsic value of American medicine but I don't think he cares if anyone understands him...The Spanish Frontier in North America was probably my favorite read of the semester. Mainly because I had all semester to read it! An intersting and even entertaining history of Spanish colonialization of North America and their interaction with other Europeans on the continent.

lindo_artisan_gallery photos downloadI will be doing another post, relating to her, but using somebody’s creative, chicano art. 🌈 Today, La Virgen de Guadalupe is celebrated in Mexico 🇲🇽 & here in the states she will be celebrated by Hispanic Catholics. HISTORY: On more than 1 occasion she appeared to, Juan Diego, a Mexican peasant but on Dec. 12, 1531 the Virgin Mary provided the proof of her visit. Mary spoke to Diego in his language of Nahuatl and told him to tell Archbishop Zumárraga to build a church on Tepeyac Hill (Cerro de Tepeyac). Zumárraga was in disbelief about Diego’s apparition so the Virgin provided roses🌹 ,at a time when they were not in bloom, & were arranged on Juan Diego’s cloak. Upon returning, to the archbishop, he opened his cloak & the roses 🌹 🥀fell and his cloak revealed the image of La Virgen de Guadalupe. People make pilgrimages to the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, on Tepeyac Hill, and it is there where the cloak can be seen. It has been studied like The Shroud of Turin (The Shroud of Jesus). It is said if you look into her eyes, you can see the image of her looking at Juan Diego. Stay tuned for another posting in relation to The Virgin.I posted an image of a flag with her image, although it never became the Mexican 🇲🇽national flag, many consider this to be the 1st Mexican flag.

lindo_artisan_gallery photos downloadRefer to prior post, as well. I saw this post & knew I had to use this image, with his permission of course. He is @thundr_one Thank you, David, for letting me use it for educational purposes relating to today’s Virgen de Guadalupe. History: For those of you who follow me, by now, you know I am educational. And as I have mentioned, in the past, & I will mention again, Christianity was once not part of North, South or Central America. People had their own gods & goddesses. And therefore you might understand how a New Worlds 🌎 religion meshed into an Old Worlds. Sort of how I have explained to you about the Day of the Dead celebrations. So in relation to The Virgin Mary 🌹🥀& The Basilica, which was built in her honor, there is a MUCH OLDER, INDIGENOUS story about that location. Tepeyac or Tepeyac Hill was once a place to worship the Aztec goddess, Tonantzin Coatlaxopeuh, “Our Revered Mother” in Nahuatl. She is also known by the name Coatlicue, “skirt of snakes,”or Teteoh innan, “mother of all gods.” Like the Virgin Mary this goddess was a virgin as well. She was impregnated by a ball of feathers. The temple of this goddess ,on Tepeyac Hill, was destroyed by the Spaniards before the Virgin Mary 🌹🥀had appeared to Juan Diego. The early native Catholic converts continued to address the Virgin Mary as Tonantzin. Even now Nahuatl speaking communities still refer to her as Tonantzin. Some people consider her one in the same. Honestly it makes one wonder about these coincidences & if this might have been a way to convert the indigenous. 🤔

natpackertravel photos downloadHad a great time at Uxmal today. Some of the details on the ruins were incredible. With lots of Chaak masks. Chaak is the rain god and as there are no cenotes in this region the Mayans were very dependent on rain. Hence why Chaak is everywhere!#maya #mayanhistory #mayanculture #ruins #history #mexico #mexpacker #mexicanhistory #pyramids

She instructed Juan Diego to tell the church to build a Cathedral on the spot where they were and to carry flowers in his robe.

globalgemology photos downloadThis vintage sterling silver bracelet might not be worth a huge sum, but it makes up for it with its rich history..In the mid 1920s, American architect and artist, William Spratling, moved to Mexico and began teaching architecture. By the late 1920s, Spratling moved to the silver mining town of Taxco, Guerrero, Mexico where he began writing a novel. The proceeds from his book weren’t nearly as much as he was expecting and he was convinced to begin designing jewelry for the local silver market. He became very successful selling jewelry and learned the craft of creating jewelry himself. He then began teaching other aspiring silversmiths, such as the Castillo Brothers. By the early 1940s, many European jewelers were forced into halting production due to World War II. It was during this time that many American luxury retailers started looking to Taxco smiths to source their inventory. Enter the Mexican Silver Boom!.Iguala is a small town just outside Taxco, both in the state of Guerrero..This particular bracelet is stamped “Iguala GRO” (GRO is the stamp for the city of Guerrero).

His larger-than-life paintings appear in government buildings throughout Mexico City and as commissioned pieces around the US in San Francisco, Detroit, and New York. His artistic philosophy was aligned with his politics, and he has been quoted as saying that "The role of the artist is that of a soldier of the revolution." Of course, he was also the husband of the beloved Frida Kahlo.. . . #unmlaii #diegorivera #rivera #mexico #felizcumpleaños #iconic #1923 #fridakahlo #artemexicano #art #painting #resistanceisfertile #mexicanidad #mexicanmuralists #mexicanartists #mexicanhistory #communism
