My research area includes the U.S. Southwest and Mexico. Specifically, I am interested in the historical and social conditions that shape the ethnic and racial identities, as well as cultural practices, of Indigenous, Mexican, and Chicana/o peoples. Currently, I focus on Chicana/o communities that claim an indigenous identity through a link with the Aztecs. Also, I am interested in examining the dialogue/interaction between these communities and Native American and Indigenous migrant communities.
