Introduction to Chicana Studies

This week's readings formulate a critical examination of religion and spirituality as these intersect with the material effects of normative categories of race, gender, sexuality and nation. As expressed in the readings, Chicana spirituality has both Indigenous and Spanish roots (Catholicism). As Yolanda Chavez-Broyles argues Chicanas have a rich legacy of sociopolitical practices that bring together Indigenous Knowledges and Catholic concepts and symbols/iconographies. It is through spirituality that Chicanas have constructed mestizaje as an epistemology of resistance, as an alternative space to subvert and challenge patriarchy, colonialism and racism. Author Theresa Delgadillo defines spiritual mestizaje as "the transformative renewal of one's relationship to the sacred through a radical and sustained multimodal and self-reflexive critique of oppression in all its manifestations and a creative and a creative and engaged participation in shaping life that honors the sacred" (1). In your post, discuss the different elements that have shaped Chicana spirituality and religiosity as expressed by the authors of this week's readings. Consider analyzing diversity in relation to how Chicanas experience spirituality and religion. FYI: reading are in the attahcments
