July 19-22 Xicanx Identity in the Classroom Workshop Series

Ana Castillo wrote, “It is our task as Xicanistas, to not only reclaim our indigenismo--but also to reinsert the forsaken feminine into our consciousness”. Xicanx history isn’t just the study of Mexican Americans or even Latin Americans, but it’s a journey of reclaiming our indigeneity and building our historical consciousness so that we can enact positive movement within ourselves, thus transforming our thinking. Regardless of whether you identify as Chicanx/Xicanx/ or Latinx, this workshop will provide you with a counter narrative of Xicanx history that can be shared with your comunidad and your students to create a source of healing and empowerment. 

Join Xicana educator Felina Rodriguez as we share in the knowledge of Xicanx history that our settler colonial systems have tried to burn, and (even now) attempt to ban. This series will provide a space for all educators to engage in platica, critical reflection, and new instructional frameworks, ideas, and practices that reflect the identities and knowledge that students carry into our classroom. 

This workshop series consists of 4 live workshops meeting daily Monday through Thursday,with asynchronous learning.

  • Monday, July 19: “Looking for Aztlan”: Decolonial Perspectives of Mesoamerica
  • Tuesday, July 20: “The Earth Did Not Swallow Us”: Manifest Destiny & the de-indigenization of Xicanx people
  • Wednesday, July 21: “Yo Soy Joaquin”: The 1960s Chicano Movement and its Legacy
  • Thursday, July 22: “La Frontera”: Immigration Before and After 2016

Recordings & Resources will be available to those who are unable to attend. 


We want to make this learning accessible to everyone, so we ask that you give what you can. Suggested donations are $200. Please give according to your income level and privilege that comes with the intersections of your identity. When you give more, it subsidizes the registration fees of people with more limited financial means. By more equitably sharing the financial responsibility, this can be both financially accessible and financially sustainable for us all.

We recognize that as a gente, this knowledge has been systematically taken from us. If you’re an educator who identifies as Xicané/x, (Afro)Latiné/x, or Afrolatiné/x, please contact Felina at for a payment option that reflects this.
