Do you want your culture to be respect? Respect others culture. Allow me to point this out— Our Deaf community, its culture, and its language is diminishing. We sailed from Europe, to establish new world. In that transition, we slaughtered The First People and their children and told them their spiritual beliefs was savage and wrong. IF we began to respect their spiritual beliefs in...

“I did a little background work in the origin of the word and the way I got it from a couple of grandfathers and ancestors was the word Chicano is derived from an old Aztec word meaning rebel and…the Spaniards used the word Chicano to refer to the Aztecs who never gave up the battle. In other words, after the Spanish conquest, there was a group of Aztecs who kept fighting the...

the wolf at twilight, by kent nerburn
“Well, we see those ghosts. And they make our hearts sad and they hurt our little children. And when we try to say something, you tell us, ‘Get over it. This is America. Look at the American dream.’ But as long as you’re calling us Redskins and doing tomahawk chops, we can’t look at the American dream, because those things remind us that we’re not real human...

The Peace Pilgrim
IN MY EARLY LIFE I made two very important discoveries. In the first place I discovered that making money was easy. And in the second place I discovered that making money and spending it foolishly was completely meaningless. I knew that this was not what I was here for, but at that time (this was many years ago), I didn’t know exactly what I was here for. It was out of a very deep seeking...

Ah, pinche gringos.
In backcountry, many Mexicans live all of their lives on a scale that we would consider “camping” Chopping firewood, hauling water, hunting, fishing, gathering herbs, wild fruits and vegetables, and sleeping on mats or hard cots are all part of the normal daily routine. These backcountry Mexicans find it difficult to understand why rich people—and we are definitely rich by...
if the city is man’s most successful attempt to remake the world he lives in more after his heart’s desire and hence condemned to live in it, as robert parks has remarked, then my commitment as a photographer is not only to denounce our need for a privately owned household, but to point the struggle our contemporary world faces between the ideals of capitalism and the strive and desire for fairer...

why you should call yourself a chicano
you are not “his-panic”, you are not the government’s panic. you are chicano, the people that have always been here before the spaniards. your history is rich, your people knew how to create irrigation systems, farming, goldsmith, and adobe building. you are chicano because the river has never divided us. you are chicano because you are proud of it. you are chicano because...

letter to the editor
Audism in Alpine Twice I was being judged in two separate events in a day for simply being Deaf and using American Sign Language. One, at the farmer’s market, for wrongful accusation that I am not capable of taking myself or even my son. Secondly, for Cinco De Mayo at the Kokonerot Park, for mocking my friend and I for simply ordering delicious chile relleno and brisket burritos through...

the mysterious of everett ruess
I thought that there were two rules in life— never count the cost and never do anything unless you can do it wholeheartedly. Now is the time to live. God, how the wild calls to me. There can be no other life for me but that of the lone wanderer. It has an irresistible fascination. The lone trail is the best for me Alone, I shoulder the sky, And hurl my defiance And shout the song of the...
