Mujer Latina

La Mujer Latina watches children and sees the ghosts and angels that surround her. As we live and play between two cultures we must take the best with the worst from each.

Many of the stories we share have a bit of the mystical or magic realism because there are beliefs from indigenous and European origins that meet, blend, and create new views of the world or rather explanations for experiences. Belief in angels lend themselves to belief in spirits for good or evil in either European or Indigenous cultures. In books on the conflicts experienced by Latinas, the gendered role create huge impact on women. USAmerican Latinas have many conflicts but we have many choices too.
