LATINOPIA IS BACK! Many of you regular Latinopia visitors probably saw that we were off-line for a few days last week. Darn these technical glitches! But we’re back on-line now with our new updated systems.
And so this week we have the blogs and video that we were going to post last week. We begin with video of a wonderful performance by the celebrated El Teatro Campesino as they delve into ancient Mayan history and interpret one of the ancient books of the Quiche Maya, The Popul Vuh. Check out their masterful outdoor puppet show Popul Vuh Heart of Heaven directed by Kinan Valdez. This is a must see video!
Our bloggers this week are Luis R. Torres, Sal Baldenegro, Julie Carmen and, of course, Angela Ortiz. Tales of Torres takes a look at the Long Beach Museum of Latin American Art and their new policy allowing for the exhibit of art work by Chicanos. Wait? They are a Latin American art museum and they had a rule that no art by Mexican Americans could be shown? Yep, believe it or not. But now that rule has changed as Luis Torres explains in his blog “Ya Era Tiempo!”
Sal Baldenegro’s Political Salsa y Más takes a look at how Chicanos and Latinos in general are being priced out of higher education. Yes, it seems the market incentive now rules on campus to the detriment of our people. Check out Sal’s thoughtful blog. Julie Carmen brings us another of her Yoga Talk with Julie Carmen. This week she shows “Revolving Triangle Pose.” Angela’s Photo of the Week is “The Pond.”
Enjoy your week on Latinopia and spread the word–WE’RE BACK ON-LINE!
