Untitled (student art)

Art by Maria Chi-Chable, shows the actress, Yalitza Aparicio, with hands on hips and flowers at bottom of picture. Also, a butterfly and words of Gloria Anzaldúa

I am a first-generation student and this piece pays homage to my heritage and identity, lo mexicana y indígena. By combining the words of Gloria Anzaldúa and the image of Yalitza Aparicio, I welcome my indigenous identity and my Spanish voice, using feminist discourse. It is my hope to communicate my identity, empowered between and by two beautiful, intersectional cultures.
