Native American House: Dinner on Us: A History of Indigenous Mexican Migration to the U.S. South

Event Type
Native American House

Sep 5, 2023   5:00 - 6:00 pm  

Dr. Yuridia Ramírez is an historian of the modern United States with specialties in migration, Latinxs, labor, and indigeneity. Her research employs archival and oral history methodologies to understand how people moving across borders, and their communities left behind, have adapted racial and ethnic identifications over time as tools of empowerment to confront intersecting systems of racism and colonialism.

In her talk, Dr. Ramírez examines indigeneity in Mexico and traces the migration of P’urhépechas from Cherán, Michoacán, to North Carolina since the 1980s.
