This body of work celebrates the Indigenous heritage of people and is intended to provoke curiosity into the untaught histories of our Mesoamerican legacy.

Artist Statement

The Uncolonized: A Vision in the Parallel is a peek into a parallel world, where the Western Hemisphere averted colonization, and the indigenous people of the lands thrived unobstructed. This body of work celebrates the indigenous heritage of people like me and is intended to invoke curiosity into the untaught histories of our Meso-American legacy. Growing up Mexican-American along the border in El Paso, we were taught to take pride in our Mexican heritage, but it wasn’t until I was older that I realized there was a large part missing. My family could track their Spanish lineage easily and did so proudly. When I asked about our other half, I was met with confusion, generalization, or dismissiveness. I spoke with many other friends, who were also Latino, and they experienced similar responses. They knew that they were of Spanish descent, but the indigenous side was vague. This led me to research not only where I came from but the civilizations as well. What I discovered was that I not only came from a culturally rich lineage (Rarámuri and Zapotec) but highly sophisticated and technological advanced societies as well. From the vulcanization of rubber by the Olmec to the astronomy and mathematics of the Maya to the Architectural wonders of the Mexica, there was a lot to learn and be proudof from our people. And none of it was taught in schools! With this exhibition, I hope to inspire others to research their own affluent heritages and fully embrace their complex ancestry. The Uncolonized is a utopian world of bountiful wonders, where all the indigenous people united to form a superpower in the world. A world of Aztechnonauts exploring the heavens; Mayathmaticians unlocking the secrets of the universe through theoretical equations; Olmchemists creating new polymers; and alloys to move theworld forward and Zapotecknical engineers building the architecture of the future. It is a SciFi-inspired vision of not what could have been, but through multiverse theory, what is currently happening in another universe.
