This talk will focus on Afro-Indigenous sites of resistance during Mexico’s colonial era. Racial-legal codes in 18th century Veracruz sought to limit social interactions between Black and Indigenous peoples. The criminalization of both groups opens further dialogue on the ways colonization, race, and space interact and intersect to shape the social world in the Cordoba-Orizaba region of Veracruz.
Dinner on Us is a biweekly one-hour evening program comprising scholar and practitioner-led workshops and a meal. Workshops either spotlight a specific campus resource or promote the inclusion of Indigenous perspectives about topics such as, but not limited to, the history of colonization, Indigenous-settler relationships, and Indigenous ways of knowing and being.
