Soy Indigena, Not Hispanic, Not Latinx
'Soy Indigena, Not Hispanic, Not Latinx' is an art piece by Ernesto Yerena in collaboration with activist Edna Chavez and photographer Arlene Mejorado inspired by Edna's identity as an Indigenous Guatamalan womxn and her rejection of labels placed upon her like "hispanic" and "latina" that erase her ancestral roots and experience as an indigenous person living in South Central Los Angeles. As Edna reclaims her identity unapologetically, we sought out make an image of "urban Indigeneity" ---- a complexity that is beautiful, challenging, and defiant of the assimilation process promoted in the United States. 2018.
Artwork by Shepard Fairey inspired by a portrait of William Anderson by Arlene Mejorado, 2018.
