I like to do that a lot, just make it physical. You talk about making meaning out of broken pieces, out of hyphens, taking away the hyphens and forging a new meaning. Taking the dash out of Mexican dash American and forging Chicano and Chicana. So they were very exciting years, as you know.
Very exciting for all of us: Asian-American Community, Black Power, Red Power, very exciting, because we were the makers Wild latinos part 2 of 2 that new word in a sense, of that new moment. And you could see it in the blood, in your nerves, in the streets. You could see each other and it was kind of a wild group, chanting, moving around, and eating burnt tortillas, and driving around in busted VW vans.
But now you know, in all its repercussions, you like you said, performance, theatre, Teatro Campesinoplays, and books, and journals, magazines, and readings, dialogues, and audience building, community building, new tradition building heroes, and how they were all interconnected as a community, and in diverse forms of creative expression: They were a set of stories that were open-ended.

It can become cardboard, one-dimensional, a set of props—but it was fabulous. And you can see all the outcomes today. So that current is also very strong. And I think at the M.

He refashioned himself into a poet, which in a way he always was. His writing has always been and his interests have always been literature and poetry and anthropology.
He drives it out of the room; he exorcises that ghost. So in flux, flux, out flux, multi-currents, multi-style. Spoken word has just exploded, as you know. Spoken word has just exploded.
Danza de la Conquista, which is part of the Aztlan crucible. And now the Aztec dance groups are in every high school too, and every community. And they know all the songs and they have the carved out Aztec drums.
