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

Bandana made by Progressive Student Network, United States, [1980s]. The Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front [FMLN] was the leading Leftist force in El Salvador's civil war in the 1980s. This bandana was made by U.S. supporters to replicate the bandanas worn by FMLN guerrillas to conceal their identity during political activity. The movements against U.S. involvement in Central America were amongst the most important social movements in the country during the Reagan/Bush years. #specialcollections #ephemera #1980s #elsalvador🇸🇻 #elsalvador #centralamerica #latinamerica #latinamericanhistory #socialism #socialist #communist #communism #marxism #marxist #guerrilla #armedstruggle #fmln #latinxhistory #latinx

Moral of this picture: it's hard to have nice hair climbing ruins. Similar altitude, actually. Machu Picchu > Teotihuacan. Just.

Figure of

Figure of "Mosquito Indians" in The Popular Science Monthly Vol XLV:12. 1894. "The Mosquito Indians are by no means homogenous. The coast lands which along their whole length are indented with a series of shallow lagoons separating them from the main sea, are inhabited with by a mixed race whose veins African and Indian blood are striving for ascendancy, with a dash of white blood in infused by buccaneers and Jamaican traders of olden times." - Robert N. Keely Jr.

If you’re Puerto Rican, you might recognize this book. It lives in the home of every Puerto Rican abuelita, and has likely been passed down to their daughters and possibly even to you. Carmen Aboy Valldejuli (maiden name: Ferrer, a prominent and wealthy Puerto Rican family) wrote Cocina Criolla after compiling dozens of traditional island recipes and testing them extensively with her husband, a lover of the culinary arts. Carmen didn’t grow up learning how to cook — her childhood home cook, Francisca Falú, a woman of African descent, began teaching her when she came of “marrying age.” Though the book is simple (meant to be an instruction manual for women learning how to cook for the first time), it’s also a complex look into Puerto Rican society: largely targeted towards women (use of female pronouns) who are of an elite class (the list of necessary kitchen items is extensive, and in the first edition included marble countertops for pastry rolling) who use their cooking prowess mainly to impress at dinner parties and while entertaining guests. There’s also much to be gleaned about the Puerto Rican diet: lots of frituras and manteca, not so many fresh fruits and vegetables. •
But Cocina Criolla is more than a cookbook or even a historic artifact; it’s a piece of the Puerto Rican story. I moved to Washington, DC, with a copy tucked in my suitcase: a gift from my own abuelita, who told me she learned to cook thanks to Carmen, the Puerto Rican Julia Child. Her inscription to me: “I hope you enjoy this book and that it’s helpful to you when you’re not close to us.” Though my own culinary education has mainly occurred via the Internet, I still schlep Cocina Criolla (and its successor, Juntos en la Cocina) to every new house. I still dream of the recipes contained in its pages. I still read the inscription when I feel far away from home. 🇵🇷

If you’re Puerto Rican, you might recognize this book. It lives in the home of every Puerto Rican abuelita, and has likely been passed down to their daughters and possibly even to you. Carmen Aboy Valldejuli (maiden name: Ferrer, a prominent and wealthy Puerto Rican family) wrote Cocina Criolla after compiling dozens of traditional island recipes and testing them extensively with her husband, a lover of the culinary arts.

Por fin termineeeee, todo esto es la introducción y el capítulo 1 de:

Por fin termineeeee, todo esto es la introducción y el capítulo 1 de: "El saqueo cultural de América Latina", es uno de esos libros que me alegro de que me lo hayan dado para leer en la u porque no creo que lo hubiese leído si no fuera obligatorio, pero me gustó mucho. Habla del periodo de "descubrimiento y conquista" desde el punto de vista de los pueblos indígenas, como la matanza duró siglos, como destruyeron la cultura, la religión y el arte de nuestros antepasados. Aveces se torna un poco crudo el relato, pero son cosas importantes que debemos saber porque forman parte de nuestra historia. #Studygram #Saqueocultural #LatinAmericanHistory #Historiadellibroylasbibliotecas

Concilio, or the Council of Spanish Speaking Organizations of Philadelphia Inc., was founded in 1962 by a group of Latino leaders who were concerned about the social problems facing the growing Latino community of Philadelphia. As a federation of various Latino fraternal and social organizations, Concilio served as a liaison between the Spanish-speaking community and the rest of the city, and was the first organization specifically founded to address Latino community development. Concilio confronted issues such as discrimination, poor housing, inadequate city services and lack of bilingual education, and sought to establish Latino representation in city agencies and school administrations. In addition to cultural events, Concilio continues to advocate for Philadelphia's diverse Latino community and provide access to health, employment and educational services.

The architecture in Peru’s capital Lima takes you through all the various cultural and politico-ideological eras of the last 500 years of South American history. In the 1960ies, the government of Peru was toppled by a military coup led by general Juan Velasco whose military junta amidst Chile’s Pinochet and Argentina’s Perón was such a rare thing as a leftist military dictatorship in South America - introducing an agrarian reform and the nationalisation of natural resources. The Sheraton Hotel in Lima, which I came across today, surely is at least an aesthetic reminder of this “banana republic”-like epoch.

HISPANIC HISTORY IS USA HISTORY = establishing a distinction is not only futile, it’s foolish. Ignorance of our commonalities leads to #familyseparation and artificial enmities. Honored to have been part (albeit small) of reconstructing Florida’s early history. ************ 🌸🌼🌹🌻🌺. “‘An Account of the Martyrs in the Provinces of La Florida’ (Relación d Los mártires que ha habido en las Provincias de La Florida, c. 1619), written by the Peruvian Franciscan Luis Jerónimo de Oré (1554-1630), makes several new claims on our understanding of the US historical record... In representing La Florida, Oré describes the interaction between indigenous populations and Franciscan friars. He offers documentation on people-to-people encounters, which has been lacking, as military and settler accounts have concentrated more on land possession. Traditionally, New England and Plain Indian cultures have represented the US past, and Florida has been a footnote on Mexican histories. Both English- and Spanish-language historians have tended to ignore the area’s early record: they have often failed to appreciate the significance of Europe’s struggles played out in that vastness. Fought over by Spain, France, and England, the are manifests the international politics behind those countries’ economic jealousies and claim disputes” (Introduction 1-2). *

Today I went to Peru’s National Museum to see one of the most impressive photo exhibitions I have ever seen: Covering 20 years of the Peruvian civil war (1980-2000), the photos speak for themselves.
Still, in spite of the touching content, I was not satisfied with what I saw. On the contrary, the exhibition made me think that this conflict reflects almost all of the themes that occupy my mind, and that conventional social science provide as good as no serious answers as to what happens when people take to arms in the struggle for a better life. In the western epistemological tradition, wars retrospectively always become a matter of reconciliation and thereby a story about victims and “justice”. When it comes to the causes - and this especially goes for the post 9/11 epoch in which we still live - “explanations” get even worse, since they are in essence autistic: At the museum, as in any book or analysis of contemporary struggles, terrorism occurs because of, well... terrorism, thereby explaining nothing. Cause and effect are one and the same. If anything, Marxist analysis has shown that in order to understand the historical development of society, one has to consider not what conflates (hence the tendency of autism in the sciences) but rather the recurring contradictions.
This exhibition thus made me realise that what needs to be done is to ask the right questions - which is why I have chosen to go to the remote areas of the rural Andean communities in the coming weeks to try to speak with some of the people involved in the conflict that almost saw the collapse of the Peruvian state in an armed struggle with the Peruvian Communist Party - better known to the world as Sendero Luminoso (The Shining Path).

Just beyond Cartagena's famous clocktower is Plaza de los Coches, a former

Just beyond Cartagena's famous clocktower is Plaza de los Coches, a former "slave market". Cartagena is well known for its colorful colonial architecture and being the first Colombian city to declare independence from Spain. Yet the city's history of slavery is not as widely known or openly discussed. Cartagena was once the lagest port in Latin America for Africans brought to the nation's shores, forced and sold into enslavement. . . . Detrás del famoso Torre de Reloj en Cartagena está la Plaza de los Coches, un antiguo "mercado de esclavos". Cartagena es muy conocida por su colorida arquitectura colonial y por ser la primera ciudad colombiana en declarar la independencia de España. Sin embargo, la historia de esclavitud en la ciudad no es tan conocida o abiertamente discutida. Cartagena fue el puerto más largo de América Latina para los africanos traídos durante la esclavitud.

Simón Bolívar: vanilla ice cream with candied chorizo and guava paste

When Bolivar drafted the Bolivian constitution he opted for a strong government with the president, “the sun which, fixed in its orbit, imparts life to the universe,” serving a life-long term. Bolivar thought that Spanish Americans were “seduced by freedom,” but the constitution still included liberal elements such as civil rights and a strong, independent judicial power. Next, Bolivar moved to Columbia where he became dictator from 1828 to 1830. Bolivar hoped for a greater Columbia, a unity of countries that would emphasize national identity, promote economic sufficiency, and earn respect from other nations like Britain. Gran Columbia did not last due to forces of separatism and the strength of local governments.
•
Bolivar attempted to reform as well as liberate, but the established ruling classes did not agree with all of Bolivar’s plans. For example he sought to give land back to the indigenous people, but instead many Indians were forced to provide labor. Historians agree that Bolivar could not push the creole elite too far without fear of losing the revolution. But when independence was granted to the Northern South American countries, the elite ignored the full rights of many. Bolivar declared, “Independence is the only benefit we have gained, at the cost of everything else.”
