1907 Panama 1/2 Centesimo. I’m huge fan of fractional coinage— it’s interesting to think about a century ago when buying something at the store meant spending (or receiving as change) a fraction of a cent. This is the only year where Panama minted a 1/2 cent coin in it’s history of coinage, featuring the Spanish explorer Vasco Núñez de Balboa, the name of their currency to this day. I especially love the golden patina on this coin, a natural occurrence from aging.  #spanishHistory #conquistadores #panama #oldcoins #monedas #coinsofinstagram #coincollecting #CentralAmerica #LatinAmericanHistory #numismatics #numismatist #fractionalCurrency #antiques #coincollector #tonedCoins #patina

I have received so many downloads the past few days and Spirit has spoke clearly to me through my family's history and music. I finally understand. For those who are hurting it is because we are collectively fighting a battle to help restore balance. All that suffering, that deep pain, is meant for you to learn and break the pattern. When you break the pattern you are just one step closer to doing your part to help the world. But it all starts with you. You have a choice: keep suffering and stay the same or move towards what feeds your soul, what makes you feel like home and work on yourself. Choose love, love your pain, love the pain of others and love your family's ancestral pain. Forgive them. Forgive them all. The Divine Feminine is rising because we need balance. Don't fight it. #thedivinefeminineisrising #balance #bruja #healers #divinefeminine #divinemasculine #godisawoman #spirituallessons #bringbalancetotheworld #healinghurts #butitisnecessary #spiritualawakening #sheisrising #herstory #latinroots #latinamericanhistory #findyourroots

#TodayInHistory November 8th, 1519: Spanish Conquistador Hernán Cortés enters Tenochtitlan and meets with Moctezuma II. Moctezuma welcomed Cortés peacefully, due to the fact that Cortés had already massacred thousands, allied with many Aztec enemies, and showed up with an army of hundreds.  Moctezuma attempted to placate Cortés with lavish gifts of gold.
...
However, by July of 1520, Cortés had invaded Tenochtitlan and plundered the city for gold. Moctezuma was murdered, and a local rebellion broke out, forcing Cortés and his army from the city. In the process, hundreds of Cortés' men were killed, and much of the treasure was lost. Cortés later received reinforcements from Cuba, and over the course of a year, continued to batter Tenochtitlan until the city was destroyed.

South America 135 years ago today: End of the War of the Pacific (05 Nov 1883) https://buff.ly/2P9eWOJ By 1883, Chile was the clear victor in the War of the Pacific, occupying all the important Peruvian and Bolivian ports and successfully invading the Peruvian Sierra. Peru accepted defeat in October, ceding Tarapacá to Chile; although the Chilean occupation of Tacna and Arica would remain a source of contention until 1929. Bolivia - which had lost its entire Pacific coastline - would only agree to a truce at first, refusing to sign a formal peace treaty until 1904. #southamerica #history #welovemaps #map #1880s #1883 #bolivianhistory #latinamericanhistory #november #november5 #peru #chileanhistory #southamericanhistory #peruvianhistory #nineteenthcentury #maps #victorianera #andes #warofthepacific #atacama #todayinhistory #historytoday #historyteacher #historygeek #historynerd #historybuff #bolivia #peruhistory #chilehistory #antofagastachile

"D. Pedro II atingiu a vida adulta em um período em que o polímata e o sábio amador e autodidata floresciam. A experiência em uma série de campos era tão plausível quanto disseminada. A abrangência e a diversidade dos interesses literários, artísticos e científicos do imperador despertavam a admiração geral, uma vez que os monarcas da Europa se destacavam mais por interesses na arte da guerra, na caça e nos flertes do que na busca pelo conhecimento. No final da década de 1840, D. pedro II havia encontrado sua missão na vida. O conhecimento que conquistara e continuava a adquirir ele aplicaria para o benefício e o progresso de seu país. Ele se tonaria o agente da disseminação da 'civilização' (cultura europeia) no Brasil. Seria seu cidadão modelo." Roderick J. Barman: Imperador Cidadão. (Tradução: Sonia Midori Yamamoto).

The War of Triple Alliance started after Paraguay invaded Brazil’s Mato Grosso province. Argentina and Uruguay joined Brazil to form the namesake alliance of the war to repel Francisco Solano Lopez’s forces. Lopez was killed during the Battle of Cerro Cora. The most important naval battle occurred at Riachuelo. The Duke of Caxias used the Pikysyry maneuver to outlank the Paraguayan southern forces during the conflict.  The aftermath of the war saw Rutherford B. Hayes arbitrate a dispute over the control of the Chao Boreal area. Paraguay named one of its departments after Hayes due to a favorable decision regarding the area. #triplealliance #paraguay #uruguay #argentina #history #latinamerica #latinamericanhistory #history #hist #battle #war #military #militaryhistory #battlehistory #brazil #brazilhistory #invasion #quizbowl #trivia #historytrivia

South America 88 years ago today: Vargas Revolution (24 Oct 1930) https://buff.ly/2Se5sj2 Already unstable, South America was hit hard by the Great Depression, with the global demand for the raw materials that formed the basis of the continent’s economy collapsing. As the old establishment failed to handle the crisis, militarists rose to power, taking inspiration from the apparent success of fascism in Europe. In late 1930, one such general, Getúlio Vargas, seized control in Brazil, beginning an autocratic reign which would last until 1945. #southamerica #history #welovemaps #map #1930 #1930s #brazilianhistory #southamericanhistory #latinamericanhistory #historyofbrazil #historyofsouthamerica #vargas #getuliovargas #october #october24 #greatdepression #brazil #maps #historygeek #todayinhistory #autocracy #militarism #revolution #historybuff #historyteacher #historynerd

74 years ago today, the people of Guatemala, called by some the Land of Eternal Tyranny, said “enough!” to the dictatorship. Back then the majority of the indigenous, rural population was forced to work on national road construction projects and plantations – often coffee farms – owned by the rich for hunger-wages. On October 20th, 1944, a pro-democracy movement led by university students and labor organizations started a revolution. During the next ten years democratically elected authorities established the Labor Code and Social Security Institute, reformed the education system, and gave autonomy to the University of San Carlos. The most important achievement of the revolution was the Agrarian Reform – a law putting an end to the semi-feudal system and allowing the rural population to attain dignity and autonomy through the establishment of a modest, but self-sufficient economy. Uncultivated portions of large land-holdings were expropriated in return for compensation, and redistributed to about 500,000 families of local peasants constituting one sixth of the country's population. Even though the Guatemalan Agrarian Reform is described as one of the most promising land reforms in history, it was in force for only 18 months. Infuriated landowners with international interests, including the infamous United Fruit Company, lobbied the US government which responded by engineering a coup under the pretext of a communist threat. These events led directly to the Civil War, with the results of which Guatemala is still struggling.

You may have noticed that today's Google Doodle features Pittsburgh sports legend, Roberto Clemente! He is one of the greatest players of all time and a legend in his native Puerto Rico. His on-field accomplishments include 12 Golden Glove awards, a World Series MVP, and he was selected to the All-Star Team 15 times. Clemente is also well-known for his humanitarianism. He died in a plane crash while trying to deliver supplies to Nicaragua after a devastating earthquake. He was the first Latin American player to be selected to the MLB Hall of Fame.

It’s #LatinxBookstagramTour Day at Duende District! For our stop, we’ve selected some classics from a master of Puerto Rican literature, Dr. Luis Rafael Sánchez. His writings explore the complex relationship of Puerto Rico and the United States, and speak to the ways in which islanders are affected by Americanization and loss of culture. They’re also richly written — La guaracha del Macho Camacho is set to a “guaracha” (musical genre) beat, and it’s often said that the song itself is the protagonist of the story. For those looking to connect with their Latinx roots — or just learn more about Puerto Rico’s history as a modern colony — these classics are must-reads. What books make up your Latinx canon? 📚✊🏽🇵🇷

This was an elective. And it was one of the best classes I’ve ever taken. So much of our present is a direct result of decades-old decisions and prejudice. It’s too easy to forget that compassion is our greatest strength. -

About that @sothebys #artauction with #Banksy’s piece, “self-destructing” shortly after it sold for over a Milli.... I’m happy to share that my wife #chicana #tejana #OAKLAND based #contemporaryartist @ccartsalumni @nataliaanciso’s work from her acclaimed #PinchesRinches series was recently referenced by Sotheby’s Institute of Art’s (@sothebysinstitute) Head of Art Business Studies, Dr. Iain Robertson in his newest book, New Art, New Markets, published by #London based @lhartbooks and available now for £25 (or about $50, when it releases in the US, late Fall)! It’s the third time her work has been referenced or used in a British publication, and the first time she has been referenced in a purely academic art text.  Awesome stuff!  ALSO:  She has a solo exhibition going on now at @sbcast now till late October, in an awesome show curated by high schooler @artjuliacampos who is part of the Emerging Leaders in the Arts program at @mcasantabarbara, and who has put this show together.  Congratulations to all!  If you’re out in the 805 and #SantaBarbara, come through to see Natalia’s solo show!

Inka Photographic Diary Day 2 : The curved wall of Qorikancha.

Ana has been exploring the architectural remains of most sacred place in the Inka empire, Qorikancha, or the Temple of the Sun. The temple is in Cusco city.

The original Inka structures were later modified in colonial times to turn the place into a monastery, named Santo Domingo.

Ana has taken a photo of what remains of the very fine curved wall, made from carved andesite blocks, which enclosed the temple. The temple wall sits above garden terraces.

Can you find Ana’s three friends, Wacho, Otis and Qowa, in the photo? 😉

El periódico La Prensa tuvo un semanario femenino llamado “Existencia” y en el mes de mayo de 1978 se dedicó a hacer especiales acerca de la mujer, familia y sociedad. En este número específico, se habla acerca del rol de madre y lo necesario que era que aún siguiesen habiendo mujeres cumpliendo roles domésticos. .
La futura madre no debe descuidar en ningún momento su figura y descuidar a su marido. Debe andar siempre bien arreglada y tomar la maternidad como lo más bello que existe en el mundo. Ella debe hacer de ese periodo un instante de intensa felicidad”. .

I will be teaching Latin American history next semester so I was able to tag along on the field trip to Pilsen. Pilsen is a largely Latino neighborhood in Chicago that is known for its murals, street art and the gentrification of the neighborhood.  #teacherappreciation #teachersofinstagram #highschoolteacher #historyteacher #teachersofig #teacherlife #teacherswag #teacherstuff #teachers🍎  #teacherfun #teachersrule #teachersbelike #teach #iteachtoo #iteachhighschool #iteachhistory #historyteacher #history #iteachpsych #psychology #socialstudies #socialstudiesteacher  #latinamericanhistory #chicago

My fathers side is several generations Irish-American. My mother came to the United States in the 1970’s from El Salvador. I was born and raised in the United States and consider it my home country, but El Salvador is a second home for me. So in a rare occurrence I am deviating from American history to share a rather unknown but incredible story from WWII, in honor of my heritage. 
A Salvadoran Army Colonel named, Jose Castellanos was a diplomat serving in various places in Europe before being posted in Geneva in 1942. There he became close with a Romanian Jew, Gyorgy Mandl.  To protect his friend he appointed him to a fictitious post and made his name sound more Latino; George Mandel-Mantello. Together the two started to created nationality certificates for Jews in Europe, especially for Hungarian Jews.  For authenticity, other consulates in Geneva would stamp them.  These papers provided protection from deportation to concentration camps. One document was good for a whole family to escape and be saved. Thousands of documents would be given out in Budapest where many of the Jews would stay in an abandon building. Castellanos is considered to be the Latino Oskar Schindler, it is estimated that Castellanos saved between 40,000-50,000 Jews. Many of these citizenship documents are exhibited in the Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C.. while a very small percentage would actually travel to El Salvador, most stayed in Europe, those Jews saved by Castellanos’s documents became “Salvadorans” for the rest their of lives. .

... 💃🏽... R U M B A

So many ghosts haunt DC. Remanence of the past linger and newcomers frequently walk by knowing nothing of the history and lively ethnic culture that once filled these streets. Change. It is constant and inevitable. But how do we continue to grow while keeping diversity, culture and the arts alive while developers push for more commerce and less diversification? .
.
.
History:
This mural (artist unknown to me) belonged to Rumba Cafe. This place stick around for nearly 20 years in the once lively and divers Adams Morgan neighborhood. If I wandered by Adams Morgan looking for delicious Latin American cuisine, this is where I would find it. Order up some tasty food from Argentine, Venezuelan, Puerto Rico etc. prepared by Chef Gustavo. Some of my favorite drinks like a pisco sour, caipirinhas or mojitos were enjoyed with live music and dancing on Saturday nights. .
.
.
Did you know:
Pre gentrification, Adams Morgan became one of the first Latino neighborhoods in  D.C. - There was a decent sized Salvadoran community in Adams Morgan in the 1980s that was also rich in art (including food and music.)
.
.
The D.C. you know should include minority history... it’s the more interesting one.

A few days ago we celebrated the Independence days of several Latin American countries – most notably, México. 
However, you may have noticed on Mexico's Independence day and a few days before on the 12th, bagpipe bands are brought out! 
What you may have not have known is that the 12th of September honors Los San Patricios, a battalion of Irish immigrants who abandoned the US army to fight alongside México in the Mexican-American War. 
The Irish, like the Mexicans, faced abhorrent discrimination for practicing Catholicism openly in the US. The worse the US treated Irish immigrants, the more they felt compelled to help their fellow Catholics in México during the war. When Mexico needed them most, the Irish were there to help. And for that one act of comradery, we celebrate the Irishmen who laid down their lives for Mexico on September 12th – the anniversary of the executions of those captured by the US army. 
Erin go bragh!
¡Qué Viva Irlanda! 🇮🇪

Latino American Independence 🇲🇽
🇬🇹 🇵🇪 🇧🇿 🇭🇳 🇨🇷 🇵🇦 🇸🇻 🇳🇮 ✌🏼
Every year on the eve of Independence Day, the President of Mexico re-enacts the Grito from the balcony of the National Palace in Mexico City, while ringing the same bell Hidalgo rang in 1810. 
The Cry of Dolores: Grito de Dolores, is a historical event that happened in Mexico in the early morning of 16 September 1810. Roman Catholic priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla rang the bell of his church and gave the pronunciamiento (call to arms) that triggered the Mexican War of Independence. This happened in the state of Guanajuato within the small town of Dolores (now Dolores Hidalgo).
The revolutionary tract called for the end of Spanish rule in Mexico, redistribution of land, and racial equality for the indigenous people of Mexico. Mexico did not gain its independence until 1824. 
On 15 September 1821, the Captaincy General of Guatemala, formed by Chiapas, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Honduras, officially proclaimed its independence from Spain.

Mr. Cousins has a few more pictures to share from his summer vacation trip to Havana. He got to ride in a pink Chevy from the 1950's around the city of Havana. Cuban citizens have continued to maintain these cars because of the U.S. embargo on Cuba, meaning the U.S. has refused to trade with Cuba for nearly 60 years. As a result, these classic cars are the only American vehicles in Cuba. Under the Obama administration, the U.S. resumed diplomatic relations with Cuba (something the U.S. hasn't done since the early 1960's). The future of relations between the United States and Cuba remains to be seen. Keep an eye out for more about Mr. Cousins' trip to Cuba in a future Tuesday Newsday! 🇺🇸🇨🇺 #cuba #ushistory #classiccars #latinamericanhistory #havana
