Somos Primos: Dedicated to Hispanic Heritage and Diversity Issues
The library is host to the Chicano Resource Center, established in , My bad for not explaining my intentions more precisely -- and for not including a definition of the concepts of metaphor and satire somewhere amongst my Led Zeppelin posts. For the record: of course I don't believe Ken Burns actually hates Mexicans. Vato may have an issue with over-fried chimichongas as I do or derivative roc en espanol as should everyone , but who knows? When I say "Ken Burns" I don't literally mean the so-called liberal white guy with the dorky bowl haircut who makes tedious so-called "American" documentaries for PBS.
Instead when I say "Ken Burns" I'm talking about the total, whole, and collective so-called liberal white media bloviating across the multicultural landscape. About Latinos, about race and class, about "the other. That is, of course, those few times these well-intentioned do-gooders actually turn their fickle gaze on Brown people.
Indifference being another variation of the "hate" metaphor. And when I say "Mexicans" I mean Raza in general. Brown people. Mi gente. Latinos primarily, but not always. Finally, this is not to say that I don't disagree with much of the Latino criticism of the Burns series, because I don't. For me, a Burns film is like an Ansel Adams photo, middlebrow, pretty to look at, but devoid of real thought or analysis.
But the issues raised by his latest series go much deeper than that. Stepping back for a moment from the metaphoric and into the specific, for me Burns' The War embodies all of the issues mentioned above -- and more. Throughout his long career Burns has constantly talked about his films as being stories about "America. So the series starts on Sunday. I'll be TiVoing the episodes and will have more to say in the week or so to come, but with Ugly Betty starting again, and the finale of Top Chef coming up, no promises.
For now I'll leave you with a couple of reviews and opinions: LA Weekly weighs in here with a brief yet sympathetic nod to the controversy , Carlos Guerra opines from a Tejano perspective here , and for an especially thoughtful piece in the New Yorker which pans the series go here. By Anne Valdespino, contributing writer First there was saccharine. And there have always been a host of natural sweeteners: stevia, sugar in the raw, agave and the favorite of the ancients, honey. But for sheer taste and texture, none could replace that gritty, grainy, shiny blast of heaven known as white sugar.
Until … Zsweet? Foodies take notice: It feels like sugar on the tongue, looks crystalline in the spoon and explodes with sweetness in your mouth, leaving no chemical aftertaste. Open the packet and shake it into your hand as if it's Lik-M-Aid. You'll feel like the kid who sneaked a spoonful from the sugar bowl when no one was looking.
And you might find it hard to believe that with Zsweet there's zero guilt, zero calories and zero effect on your blood sugar. Though its product is made in Minneapolis, Zsweet is headquartered in San Clemente. Its inventor, Tim Avila, 41, lives in Dana Point with his wife and kids. His philosophy? Just because it's good for you doesn't mean it has to taste bad. That's what's driving the acceptance of Zsweet. Zsweet made a big splash with those who sampled it at Expo West , a natural-products show held at the Anaheim Convention Center in March.
Its distinctive taste comes from erythritol, which is derived from fermented glucose. The erythritol is then blended with fruit extracts as flavor enhancers, not carriers that are really sugar, Avila said. Most doctors are telling diabetics to be aware of that. Robert Atkins, when he was alive, was saying watch even packets a day," Avila said. The problem is that consumers think of those products as completely safe and begin to use them too freely, he added.
Avila has no science degree but sounds like a scientist because he gained a lot of on-the-job training while working for a nutrition company called Metagenics in San Clemente. For years he had the know-how to make the product, but he was always looking for someone else to take it on. But in he reached a turning point. His father-in-law's Type 1 diabetes worsened; eventually he underwent amputation and kidney surgery. But it gave Avila the vision and passion he needed to start Zsweet's parent company, Ventana Health Inc.
I had this realization that this was becoming a problem, not only for adults but for children. I looked at the statistics and saw what was happening not just in the minority population especially among Latinos but all across this country and in other Western countries. Zsweet may be socially aware, but it's also big business.
After Expo, Avila was fielding calls from small businesses, grocery chains and big-box retailers. He's developing a no-bulk version with higher sweetening power. Avila says his business is part science and part culinary art. We have a culinary board and a chef, LaLa, who is Cordon Bleu-trained. There are diabetic friendly recipes, too. For Avila, it's all about taste. When I looked at other sweetener alternative options I felt they didn't taste very good and I decided to develop my own. There's no excuse for having something that doesn't taste good.

They include the dance-drama of Native Americans and the religious plays and pageants of medieval and Renaissance Spain. During the Spanish colonization of Mexico, Catholic missionaries used plays to help convert the native peoples of Mexico to Catholicism.
Plays were later used to teach mestizo those of mixed Spanish and Native American heritage Mexicans the mysteries and rituals of the church. In the s and s, a hybrid religious theater developed. These plays combined the music, colors, flowers, masks, and languages that were a part of the native cultures with the stories of the Bible. In Mexico and the American Southwest, these plays eventually moved farther and farther from their religious origins. In the end such plays were banned by the Catholic Church.
They were not allowed on church grounds or in church festivals. Because of this separation from the church, such plays became part of the folk culture. The community put on the plays without the help and support of the church. Hispanic Drama in the United States. The colonists brought with them folk plays from Spain and Spanish America. In their camps Onate 's soldiers would entertain each other by making up plays based on their experiences on the journey.
They also put on a popular Spanish folk play. Moros y cristianos was a heroic play about how the Spanish Christians defeated the Islamic Moors in northern Spain and drove them off the Iberian Peninsula. This play eventually spread throughout Spanish A m e ri ca.
It has even been performed in the twentieth century in New Mexico. Moros y cristianos influenced many later Hispanic epic plays about war and conflict. As early as the late s, the Hispanic folk theater in the United States developed into a theater of professionals. This usually happened in areas with large Hispanic pop u lations.
At first, touring groups from Mex i co traveled to California where they performed melodramas and musicals. In the mids regularly scheduled steamships made it easy for these groups to put on plays in San Diego, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Eventually, professional theater troupes could be found in the Southwest, N e w York, Florida, and even the Midwest. By the s Mexican theater productions had greatly increased in the border s tates. Theater companies that had previously only toured in central Mexico began to extend their regular circuits into the United States.
After the turn of the twentieth century, trains and cars allowed these com p anies to reach smaller cities. Between and , many Mexican theater houses were built to provide stages for the traveling groups. Some smaller cities even had their own Mexican theater with a resident troupe of players. Mobile tent theaters, circus theaters, and makeshift groups took plays to small towns and rural areas on both sides of the Rio Grande.
Around the time of the Mexican Revolution in , thousands of Mexican refugees settled in the Southwest and the Midwest. This influx of immigrants sparked an increase in theatrical activity. During the decades of revolution, many of Mexico's greatest dramatic artists and their companies came to the United States. They came to tour and take up temporary residence.

Mal Hombre , released in on the Bluebird label, became a hit on both sides of the border and was her signature song.

More on that sad story maybe later. Garcia and included live music and many of her songs. As with most people my age, I knew very little about Lydia. And so while the play taught me the facts of Mendoza's life and exposed me to her poignant, sentimental, powerful music, it was the crowds of Raza flocking to the show that made me aware of Mendoza's importance and cultural impact.
For more than a month -- three nights a week and a Sunday matinee performance -- the shows sold out. Lydia herself attended once. By then she was nearly 80, partially debilitated by a stroke, but insisted on attending in one of her signature large and fluffy colorful dresses she wore when performing. Her hair was swept up s style. She waved to the crowd as they gave her a standing ovation. Unfortunately, another lesson learned watching the rich exchange between talented performer and knowledgeable and appreciative audience was witnessing another example of another Secret History revealed, if only for a moment, and, equally frustrating, only within the confines of the Guadalupe Theater.
The careers and talents of performers like Josephine Baker and Billie Holiday are not only well-known to most Americans, but acknowledged as active participants and contributors to the larger story of American popular music. If anyone can lay claim for equal significance to the American pop canon it is Lydia Mendoza. Unsurprisingly, her story remains on the margins of our national cultural identity.

Still needing to find regular work, the Mendozas moved to Michigan to work in the vegetable fields. Upon hearing the family perform, co-workers encouraged them to play in town, and they spent several years working and performing in small restaurants. Back in Texas in the early s, the family often played for tips at an outdoor market in San Antonio, where the host of a Spanish-language radio show heard Ms. Mendoza sing. While the radio show made her popular in the region, the repeal of prohibition in created opportunities for cantina musicians.

Hispanic Medal of Honor recipients. Sometimes there are stories so powerful that even grown men cry. One of the articles that I wrote and which brought tears to my eyes was the one about Captain Humbert Roque Versace.
Yes, I am not ashamed to tell you that this tough Marine who some people called "Heart of Stone", could not contain his tears. Maybe it was that I remembered the friends that I lost but, mostly I believe that it was because as I wrote the article I placed myself, as a father and grandfather, in the place of his parents.
That is what happened to Versace, he was captured, tortured and executed. His mother, a talented writer whose work inspired the television series "The Flying Nun" spent her life trying to recover his remains to no avail. She then led the fight to have her son recognized with the Medal of Honor, a distinction which she was to never witness because she passed away before Congress gave their approval. In the case of Maximo Yabes, he was already a veteran of 15 years when he used his body as a shield to protect others in a bunker, moved 2 wounded men to a safer position where they could be given medical treatment and destroyed an enemy machine gun position before being mortally wounded.
This is the last of my Medal of Honor series. Try to remember the names of our 43 MoH heroes, because these were men from all walks of life who in some cases made the ultimate sacrifice, so that everyone in this country can enjoy the freedoms which often are taken for granted. He was the first member of the U. Army to be awarded the Medal of Honor for actions performed in Southeast Asia while in captivity. He joined the Armed Forces in Norfolk, Virginia. He graduated in and was commissioned a Second Lieutenant of Armor in the U.
Upon graduation from Ranger School , Capt. Versace attended Airborne School and was awarded the parachutist badge. Captain Versace was then assigned to the 3d U. Infantry Old Guard , where he served as a tank platoon leader in Headquarters and Headquarters Company. On May 12 , , Versace began his first tour of duty in the Republic of Vietnam as an intelligence advisor. In May he volunteered for a six month's extension of his tour, planning to attend seminary at the conclusion of his service and join the Catholic priesthood, hoping to return to Vietnam as a missionary working with orphans.
He was able to provide enough covering fire so that the CIDG forces could withdraw from the killing zone. Statue dedicated to Capt. Versace A second government force of about men operating only a few thousand yards from the main fight learned of the disaster too late to help. Versace was captured and taken to a prison deep in the jungle along with two other Americans, Lieutenant Nick Rowe and Sergeant Dan Pitzer.
He tried to escape four times, but failed in his attempts. Versace insulted the Viet Cong during the indoctrination sessions and cited the Geneva Convention treaty time after time. The Viet Cong separated Versace from the other prisoners. The last time the prisoners heard his voice, he was loudly singing " God Bless America ". Versace's remains have never been recovered. His headstone at Arlington National Cemetery stands above an empty grave. She went to Paris in the late s, trying unsuccessfully to see the North Vietnamese delegation as it arrived for peace talks.
Rios Versace expressed her frustration and anguish in poems. Nominations to award Versace the Medal of Honor were initiated in , but the nomination failed and he was posthumously awarded the Silver Star Medal instead. The quest for a Medal of Honor for Versace languished until the "Friends of Rocky Versace" reinitiated the crusade once more in Language added by Congress in the Defense Authorization Act ended the standoff and authorized the award of the nation's highest military decoration for combat valor to Versace.

As the battle raged, Captain Versace fought valiantly and encouraged his CIDG patrol to return fire against overwhelming enemy forces. He provided covering fire from an exposed position to enable friendly forces to withdraw from the killing zone when it was apparent that their position would be overrun, and was severely wounded in the knee and back from automatic weapons fire and shrapnel.
He stubbornly resisted capture with the last full measure of his strength and ammunition. Taken prisoner by the Viet Cong, he demonstrated exceptional leadership and resolute adherence to the tenets of the Code of Conduct from the time he entered into a prisoner of war status. Captain Versace assumed command of his fellow American prisoners, and despite being kept locked in irons in an isolation box , raised their morale by singing messages to popular songs of the day, and leaving inspiring messages at the latrine.
Within three weeks of captivity, and despite the severity of his untreated wounds, he attempted the first of four escape attempts by dragging himself on his hands and knees out of the camp through dense swamp and forbidding vegetation to freedom. Crawling at a very slow pace due to his weakened condition, the guards quickly discovered him outside the camp and recaptured him. Captain Versace scorned the enemy's exhaustive interrogation and indoctrination efforts, and inspired his fellow prisoners to resist to the best of their ability. When he used his Vietnamese language skills to protest improper treatment of the American prisoners by the guards, he was put into leg irons and gagged to keep his protestations out of earshot of the other American prisoners in the camp.
The last time that any of his fellow prisoners heard from him, Captain Versace was singing God Bless America at the top of his voice from his isolation box. Unable to break his indomitable will, his faith in God, and his trust in the United States of America and his fellow prisoners, Captain Versace was executed by the Viet Cong on September 26 , Captain Versaces extraordinary heroism, self-sacrifice, and personal bravery involving conspicuous risk of life above and beyond the call of duty were in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Army, and reflect great credit to himself and the U.

ISBN Yabes distinguished himself when he used his body as a shield to protect others in a bunker, moved 2 wounded men to a safer position where they could be given medical treatment and destroyed an enemy machine gun position before being mortally wounded. Yabes, a Mexican-American , was born in Lodi, California, and at a young age moved with his family to Eugene, Oregon where he received his primary and secondary education.
By , Yabes was a First Sergeant with a total of 15 years in the Army. The division had been stationed at Cu Chi, a village northwest of Saigon since January Yabes' company — Alpha Company — was assigned to protect a squad of Army engineers whose assignment was to bulldoze a swath between the village and a plantation. The objective of this assignment was to deny the enemy ambushers and snipers the protective cover of the lush jungles. On February 26 , , waves of Viet Cong , attacked Company A's position, blowing whistles and laying down deadly automatic weapons fire. The Viet Cong, who penetrated the barbed wire perimeter, hurled grenades towards the command bunker.
Yabes ran inside the bunker and covered its occupants with his body, all the while receiving wounds from numerous grenade fragments. Yabes then moved to another bunker and with a grenade launcher fired upon the enemy, halting a further penetration of the perimeter. Yabes then assisted two fallen comrades before he noticed an enemy machinegun within the perimeter which threatened the whole position. Yabes then proceded to attack the enemy machine gun crew. He was able to kill the entire crew before falling mortally wounded. President Lyndon B. Johnson , presented Yabes' wife and children with the Medal of Honor in a ceremony held at the White House.
Rank and organization: First Sergeant, U. Yabes distinguished himself with Company A, which was providing security for a land clearing operation. Early in the morning the company suddenly came under intense automatic weapons and mortar fire followed by a battalion sized assault from 3 sides. Penetrating the defensive perimeter the enemy advanced on the company command post bunker. The command post received increasingly heavy fire and was in danger of being overwhelmed.
When several enemy grenades landed within the command post, 1st Sgt. Yabes shouted a warning and used his body as a shield to protect others in the bunker. Although painfully wounded by numerous grenade fragments, and despite the vicious enemy fire on the bunker, he remained there to provide covering fire and enable the others in the command group to relocate. When the command group had reached a new position, 1st Sgt.
Yabes moved through a withering hail of enemy fire to another bunker 50 meters away. There he secured a grenade launcher from a fallen comrade and fired point blank into the attacking Viet Cong stopping further penetration of the perimeter. Noting 2 wounded men helpless in the fire swept area, he moved them to a safer position where they could be given medical treatment.
He resumed his accurate and effective fire killing several enemy soldiers and forcing others to withdraw from the vicinity of the command post. As the battle continued, he observed an enemy machinegun within the perimeter which threatened the whole position. On his own, he dashed across the exposed area, assaulted the machinegun, killed the crew, destroyed the weapon, and fell mortally wounded.
Yabes' valiant and selfless actions saved the lives of many of his fellow soldiers and inspired his comrades to effectively repel the enemy assault. His indomitable fighting spirit, extraordinary courage and intrepidity at the cost of his life are in the highest military traditions and reflect great credit upon himself and the Armed Forces of his country. Dozens of individuals, businesses and organizations in Eugene, Oregon, donated time, money, labor and supplies to build a memorial to honor Yabes.
They hired sculptor Tim Outman to create the memorial which features a fountain, a flag pole and a bronze bust with the likeness of Yabes set on a granite pedestal. Engraved on the base are the details of Yabes' Medal of Honor exploits. The memorial is located in Oakridge Oregon in the Greenwaters Park. Greenwaters Park is located on the east side of Oakridge, south of highway The city of El Paso, Texas also honored Yabes by naming an avenue after him.

Showing their finest gowns The people of Chepetlan Are celebrating the day Of the fiesta in their name. How the bells chime from The parish church! How the teponaxtle beats Its monotonous count!

Natives and visitors Dance with sweet equality One hears the booming voice From the local lout Another from he with the lottery Calling all to play. Between the arches of flowers Pass fleeting breezes Tempering the ardent fire Of the tropical sun. Zealous groups of the mob Agitate themselves constantly Eager for diversions Craving pleasure. Because Guerrero and his men are surely far away And there is nothing to fear of them At least while one remains at the fiesta of Chepetlan.
As afternoon comes And the sun declines, One hears a strange murmur Unusual and military, And the people are aroused. Yet, without need to explain The cause of the alarm That produces such reaction. Suddenly through the streets On a tall cinnamon horse That champs impatient at the bit And breaths with fire Rides in fast but serene A man of brave soul As noble as he is loyal. It is Guerrero, the indomitable Son of freedom; Followed by his valiant troops.. At the arrival of which Some people in town hide themselves While others come out to watch. Guerrero enters the plaza, And the prideful animal Is reigned and brought To a steady trot.
And the happy fiesta continued With no further interruption; And jacket wearers and insurgents Continued with enjoyable recreation That made for a pleasurable night This night in Chepetlan.

Photo below Miguel Barrera Guerra The Mexican Revolution was a violent social movement, it began as a response to the abuse of the nation; it exploded with the end of liberties.
The inequalities began to add up and at the opportune moment it exploded with anger. Quickly this movement of social non-conformity spread throughout the nation, like a catharsis of hate that had accumulated in the conscience of the nation, it exploded through the same conscience that had been the victim of the rule of absolute power. At the beginning of the Revolution in the first citizens of Mier joined under the command of Captain Exiquido Gonzalez, afterwards Don Jesus Carranza established a headquarters in the city from to , the infamy of the absurd crimes committed by Victoriano Huerta caused many of the citizens to join the ranks of the Constitutionalists.
What drove the men of Mier to join the Revolution was very different than that which motivated the men of the Central and Southern regions. These were not the victims of the haciendas, of the taskmaster, or of the sweatshop, nor was it the rage of the peon that grew with every lash of the whip, not even was it caused by land arbitrarily confiscated by brute force; here the motives that caused the men of Mier to take up arms were their political differences or their idealism forged by the injustices of the nation.
They went to the Revolution to make effective the three words that in took the French to the conquest of their rights, "Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity". There must be equality in all things in the true exercise of power. When the revolution had seemed to triumph, the betrayal of Victoriano Huerta struck a match that ignited a second phase, from which emerged the fiery figure of Venustiano Carranza. He was able to meld together the different forces of the resistance, defeating all usurpers. Furthermore the differences between the military leaders took this social movement to an ideological confrontation that was the cause of the Aguascalientes Convention and definitely a much more violent revolutionary movement than previously expected was initiated; The individuals Carranza, Villa, and Zapata each were responsible for deep schisms, where each one of them sought to impose their own personal political projects.
Finally, every one of them died victims of their rigidity; this rigidity took to the grave thousands of Mexicans, the majority not knowing with certainty what they were dying for. As Villa went beyond the bounds of the objectives of the Plan of Guadalupe, the conflict between the other revolutionary leaders and Francisco Villa began. Another force formed by Villa was under the command of General Chao, who coming from S. These Villa forces provided the military front against all of Tamaulipas of which Mier was no exception. Gonzalez attacked Matamoros that was being defended by General Emiliano P.

The 27th of March the Villa forces began their assault against Matamoros from the direction of "La Garita" on the road to Monterrey. The Villa cavalry charged several times without breaking the defensive lines. From April 1st to 7th the attacks of the Villa forces had the same unsuccessful results. The 13th of April the defenders of the Matamoros Plaza the downtown center were reinforced by men under the command of the Cols.
Eugenio Lopez and Teodulio Ramirez and they took their positions against the Villa forces. Lamentably the defenders lost the valiant Col. Miguel Barrera Guerra. Enrique Barrera Guerra. Both had joined the Constitutionalist forces.

It was the custom when a family built their generational home to inscribe the main beam called in Spanish ,"The Vega". All of the oldest existing houses from the historical district of Mier, Mexico have a "Vega" inscribed with the family name and date.
This is a Spanish tradition of the highest order and mandate as it communicates that the family has established an "ancestral home; casa solariega"! Francesco Quevedo the William Shakespeare of Spanish literature is known for a special quote dear to erudite Spaniards,"What a shame I have no ancestor who died in battle or an ancestral home; casa solariega!
Cualquier Espanol que veino a la colonia de Espana en America deseaba establizersu casa solariega! The Vega was like a cornerstone to the casa Solariega.

Abuelita Juanita almost raised me as I lived in her house, and my mother worked. When I stood to speak at the Christmas party and I saw all the faces of the elderly, I could not help but reflect on all those wonderful Tias, Tios, Abuelos, and Abuelas that I knew as a child from Mier. It was like giving back to them even though they are all gone. Abuelita Juanita lived through the Mexican revolution in Mier. As a child my grandmother told me all kinds of true stories from the Revolution that she experienced. Their father was Crescencio Canales inheritor to a Spanish land grant that extended to both sides of the Rio Grande River.
Abuelita Juanita told me many stories of the Revolution but I'll start out with this one. All the sisters were blond and blue eyed. My mother's mother was Maria Reyes called Reyita. Abuelita told me a contingent of Pancho Villa's men came into Mier. She said Villaistas were well known to be thieves, liars, and rapists.
Her father Crescencio hid his daughters in his house to protect them from being raped. The house was a prominent dwelling and is still there caddy corner to the plaza and across from the school named after the Canales family. This was a dangerous trip as the men were out drinking and preying on passerbys.
She said the water he brought back tasted horrible. Finally after days of abusing and living off the populace they left. Crescencio Canales was able to go to the well in daylight. The power of an idea or memory is awesome! About 47 years have passed since my grandmother took me to the tomb of Enrique Barrera Guerra. Now I have returned and I am determined to help those people to honor all my Mier ancestors. Larry Garza larrygarza comcast.
