Intro to Season II & New Series!

Welcome back to Season II of Raíces Verdes ! In this episode I give an update on what I have been up to since November of 2019, and where Season II is headed. The new season will premier on February 4th, 2020 with a new series. Beyond Chicanismo: Indigeneity & the Environment will be a series composed of 3 episodes featuring guest speakers. They all will speak on their own experience with the Chicanx identity, their indigenous ancestry and how all these identities connect to their raíces verdes. In this introduction episode I talk about my own connection to the Chicana and P’urhepecha identity, and why I decided to launch this series.
