In 1541 a significant rebellion known as the Mixaton war occurred. It consisted of various indigenous tribes who threatened to reacquire New Spain, which Spain had conquered (Ricard 3). When The Spanish constructed schools for the indigenous community to send their children, families would instead send their servants since they considered the invaders too foolish or misinformed to know the difference (Townsend 687). However, over time the native traditions began to fade. The Spanish gradually reduced human sacrifice practised by the natives until it ceased to occur. The Spanish access to trade routes meant that foreign goods found their way into the communities. Diseases also came due to this resulting in the death of nearly sixty per cent of the native population. The natives suffered through enslavement by the Spanish, who also robbed their temples and places of worship. The Mexican culture was eventually lost, and they became involved in the world trade and acquired Christianity as their religion.
During the 1960’s Mexican-American citizens began a movement advocating for a new identity. This radical movement occurred from the decades of discrimination they faced in the United States after the Mexican-American war. Mexican-Americans faced discrimination and extrajudicial killings from their American counterparts. In the late nineteenth and twentieth century, the Texas rangers killed thousands of Mexican-Americans in what they termed as ethnic cleansing (Maria 00:04:00-00:04:08). In 1874 an American rancher and his wife were found dead, and the Mexican-Americans were blamed. The Rangers went ahead and beheaded Mexican Americans who legitimately owned land, accusing them of the death of one of their own (Maria 00:04:16-00:04:46). After an investigation made on the Texas Rangers, some were dismissed.
However, no further action was taken against them. They instead ended up being sheriffs and border patrol agents (Maria 00:04:48-00:05:48). When thinking of their past, Chicano people feel a sense of solidarity from their people’s struggle. These feelings bring about pain, feelings of re/colonization physical and psychological damage (Rodriguez 148). This can be viewed as historical trauma inflicted on the current generation. Statistics show that native Americans are 1.5 times more likely to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorders than the general populace. Suicide has been determined to be the second leading cause of death in this indigenous population. We should take steps to reconnect the native people to the strengths of their heritage and culture. Assisting native Americans to process their grief and reconcile their past can bring healing to their historical trauma. Historical findings of native American history should also be published to learn more about it and embrace it. Chicana information and knowledge is only presented through mainstream (Vasquez). Native American children should also be taught more about their past from a tender age to understand and reconcile with the past from an early age. Heritages and cultural centres can also heal the natives by recognizing these places and conserving them.
