Red Salmon Arts Presents Our Sacred Maíz Is Our Mother: A Reading and Book Signing with Roberto Cintli Rodríguez
5 pm Sunday 26 October 2014
 “If you want to know who you are and where you come from, follow the maíz.” That was the advice given to author Roberto Cintli Rodríguez when he was investigating the origins and migrations of Mexican peoples in the Four Corners region of the United States.  Roberto Cintli Rodriguez brings together scholarly and traditional (elder) knowledge about the long history of maíz/corn cultivation and culture, its roots in Mesoamerica, and its living relationship to Indigenous peoples throughout the continent, including Mexicans and Central Americans now living in the United States. The author argues that, given the restrictive immigration policies and popular resentment toward migrants, a continued connection to maíz culture challenges the social exclusion and discrimination that frames migrants as outsiders and gives them a sense of belonging not encapsulated in the idea of citizenship. The “hidden transcripts” of corn in everyday culture—art, song, stories, dance, and cuisine (maíz-based foods like the tortilla)—have nurtured, even across centuries of colonialism, the living maíz culture of ancient knowledge.  This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.

Awareness and Actions for the #43 Missing Students in Mexico

Vigil for Disappeared Students *Bring Candles*

 

On September 26th, 43 students from the Normal Rural School in Ayotzinapa, Mexico disappeared after police and civilian gunmen fired upon them in the neighboring town of Iguala, where they had been collecting funds for an October 2 protest in Mexico City. The students were protesting the cutting of funds for their state-funded university, which trains future elementary school teachers. Six students were killed that day and others were reportedly taken away in police cars. After several days, the government claimed “[we] do not know where they are”. On October 4th, mass graves with bodies were found nearby in Iguala. Officials are investigating a possible connection between the graves and disappearances. Relatives of the missing students and human rights organizations have called for the immediate and safe return of the students and for the prosecution of responsible aggressors.
