Climate Change and Violence Part 2

Tue, 29 Jan 2008 06:46:19 -0500

Climate Change and Violence? Cautionary Tales from the Pre-Columbian Andes The seminar will take place on January 25, 2008, 4 to 5 PM, in 201 Old Chem Building, West Campus, Duke University, Durham, North Carolina. Dr. Arkush received her PhD at UCLA in 2005. Her research centers on the interplay of warfare, political power, social identity, and ritual in the prehispanic Andes. Her doctoral research focused on the later part of the prehispanic sequence after about A.D. 1000, when many small polities throughout the Andes were apparently engaged in cycles of endemic warfare. Fieldwork on a suite of fortified hilltop sites in the northern Lake Titicaca basin in Peru investigated the regional patterns that emerged from conflictual and cooperative social relationships. This study also examined the chronology of fortification to question current interpretations of the causes of intergroup violence at the time.

Mimi Lozano is the editor of the Somos Primos Internet Newsletter: http://www.somosprimos.com. Unfortunately this interview took place via my computer telephone during a thunderstorm here in NC. The two sides of the conversation became slightly out of alignment and I worked hard to get them as close as they are. My apologies for the slight overlapping that is obvious from time to time. I'm sure that future efforts will improve

Rosalinda Ruiz Interview August 19, 2005; NFU@JosephPuentes.com

Fri, 19 Aug 2005 05:05:00 +0000

Today's show is really a family affair. First I want to thank my Tio David Quesada and Abel Solano for their help with the Intro and Outro. . .at the end of the interview you will hear their complete rendition of the classic, "Sabor A Mi." I'm so happy to introduce to you a top caliber researcher who happens to also be my 6th cousin, Rosalinda Ruiz. She has a database of discovered relatives that numbers in the thousands. I'm very proud of her and her research abilities as she was able to find the common link in both of our genealogies and thus increase the number of my relatives by about a thousand individuals. In another line of her genealogy she was able to trace her family tree back to Spain via "her Governor" and ancestor Juan Fernandez de Cordoba the Governor of Nueva Vizcaya. She is not only a seasoned researcher but is a cordial and fun person to be around.

Mexican Border Crossing Records by ClairePrechtel-Klusken; NFU@JosephPuentes.com

Sat, 24 Sep 2005 05:05:00 +0000

Her second message was a power house presentation on the subject of one of her main work projects at the National Archives, "Mexican Border Crossing Records." I'm sure you will all agree that these two messages are worth their weight in gold especially if you are just starting off in Genealogy or have hit a brick wall because you don't know "where" in Mexico your family came from. If the latter is your situation there is a strong chance you can find the information you need to get started in the many rolls of "Mexican Border Crossing Record" films that NARA owns.

"The Grass Widow of the North" by Margarita Vallazza; NFU@JosephPuentes.com

Sat, 8 Oct 2005 05:05:00 +0000

'The Grass Widow of the North' is a title that is analogous to a hunting and gathering culture where the men of a tribe or village go hunting and their wives/women stay in a temporary communal hut...married women but without their men. Such women were known as "grass widows." When the hunters triumphantly return with their "trophies" of flesh, there is a huge celebration and all the people celebrate with a huge feast that culminates in the burning of hut. In this poem, this woman is apart from her husband because he's gone to look for work in the North. The words are also sound effects and, if you listen carefully, you can hear "La Llorona" in the wind and a reference to the children's rhyme, "Que llueva, que llueva, la Virgen en la cueva" I sang with my playmates when it rained. 'Tempus Fugit' Stopped in Its Tracks is an oxymoronic reference to time flying but going nowhere because it is stopped. The poem also refers to a popular 1930s song generally played on an accordian. The poem also refers to the Quetzalquatl legend and Malinche. 'Mexico' touches on the oil boom and resultant financial depression of the 1980s. Margarita Vallazza's book is out of print but she has a few copies available, contact her directly at: TeaCozyGran@kc.rr.com

Esteban Valdes Salazar by Arturo Ramos; NFU@JosephPuentes.com

Sat, 18 Mar 2006 05:05:00 +0000

Esteban Valdes Salazar is the municipal historian ("cronista") of the municipality of Totatiche, Jalisco. He was born in Totatiche and as an adult moved to Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, where he worked as a verger in one of the local parishes. It was there that his interest in genealogy and historical research began after he was exposed to the disciplines by a parrishioner. While still living in Monterrey, he wrote his first book, Los Valdes de Totatiche, which documents the various branches of the Valdes family in Totatiche and Colotlan, Jalisco. His second book, El sacerdocio ministerial, singular don de la parroquia de Totatiche, Jalisco, documents the descendants of Joseph Cayetano Grano and his six daughters, who are considered pivotal figures in the history of Totatiche and who are the ancestors of most of the illustrious clergy that has come from Totatiche. He has also documented the genealogy of Saint Cristobal Magallanes Jara, who was born and served as priest in Totatiche, and most recently wrote a two volume history of Totatiche. This history, which was published by the Ministry of Culture of the State of Jalisco, can be found in many of the most renowned libraries in the United States. Arturo Ramos is an economist in Washington, DC. His family immigrated to Los Angeles, where he was born, from the vicinity of Totatiche, Jalisco. His interest in genealogy was inspired by his father, who had himself collected and compiled subtantial genealogical information about their family before Arturo joined the effort. Arturo is an active member of the Nuestros Ranchos genealogy group (http://NuestrosRanchos.com) and has traced many of his lineages back to the 17th century. He is currently writing a book which explores the historical ethnography of the Totatiche region and documents his father's genealogy within this ethnological context.

Fabian Garcia - Pioneer Hispanic Horticulturist 1871-1948 by Dr. Paul Bosland, Ph.D.; NFU@JosephPuentes.com

Sun, 1 Oct 2006 05:05:00 +0000

Dr. Fabian Garcia devoted his life to horticultural science. His work as a horticulturist changed the face of New Mexico agriculture, and that of a nation. Garcia was a member of New Mexico State University's first graduating class in 1894. When he became the director of New Mexico State University's Agricultural Experiment Station and Extension Service in 1913, he was the first Hispanic in the nation to lead a land-grant agricultural research station.

Noche de Candela - September 15, 2006 "Noches de Candela" poetic vigils are a series of literary events aimed at invoking the Oshun-Chango spirit to produce a major "Rumba in San Juan de Ulua" fortress in Veracruz, Mexico summer 2007 where humanists are to meet to pay homage to the African ancestors through their song and witnessing. San Juan de Ulua was the door of entry for hundreds of thousands of enslaved Africans during the Spanish colonial period which lasted around three hundred years in that region of the continent now a part of Mexico. This foremost chapter of the history of the diverse African presence and permanence in Mexico has been kept silent. The souls of these ancestors are trapped in oblivion, official negation and the Eurocentric account of the facts that has dominated Mexican history. The common thread for these events will be "Marronage and Manumission in the Americas: an Alternate Vision of Planetary History."

Don Mariano Leyva Dominquez (QEPD), Los Mascarones y Teatro Chicano Los Mascarones became the most well known and respected theatre group in Mexico, largely because of the political content of its work, but also because it played a major role in developing linkages with like-minded groups in the United States and across Latin America. It was founded in 1963 at the Prepa No. 6 in downtown Mexico City with five members and a director named Mariano Leyva Dominguez. Their name derived from the masks, or mascaras, that bordered the entrance to the school. . . .
