Part 4: Ceremony in Balance

As a counter to the hunk of sandstone that was once invested with so much power to divide, this episode of Unsettled examines the blueprints that our communities already have for coming together and being in right relation. In fact, while the obelisk sat inanimate, in Indigenous and mixed Indigenous communities across the state and throughout the Americas, the Matachines performed histories of international relations, generation after generation. Episode 5, part 4, looks at these relations — and reconciliation — through the prism of this shared dance.

With Jason Garcia, Dr. Brenda M. Romero, Dr. David Garcia, and Dr. Bjorn Krondorfer

Part 5: Ceremony Out of Balance

When scientists harnessed energy for the creation of the atom bomb, they introduced another wave of colonization. Indigenous, mixed Indigenous, and Chicanx communities are still grappling with the consequences. With Beata Tsosie Peña and Yang Toledo.

Part 6: MUD

Porter Swentzell said history is mud. Jason Garcia called the people of New Mexico concrete. Embedded with stories near and far, and legacies of labor and memory, adobe is just as complicated.

Part 7: Colores Sospechos I

After Spaniards arrived in the Americas, they introduced a rigid caste system that attempted to define all the new mixtures of people born from miscegenation. Who are we now? Who were we then? And were those earliest colonists themselves colores sospechos?

Part 7: Colores Sospechos II

What other identities and connections to place have been erased over the course of the many waves of imperialism and colonialism? How do we seek those ancestors? And how can we generate new relationships to land, place, and culture based on these connections?

Part 8: Cleanse

We were born out of a mass genocide, Artemisio Romero y Carver said, and that violence has never been resolved in our culture. How do those ancestral wounds continue to persist in the present and what are some of the ways our communities, here and elsewhere, carry the medicine and resilience needed to heal.

With Dra. Rocio Rosales Meza, Veronica Iglesias, Joseluis Ortiz, Ralph Martinez, and Michelle Angela Ortiz
