Latino Roots: A Grand Celebration

Mariachi del Sol performed at the celebration / photo by Feather Crawford.

 

June 9, 2017—Yesterday’s Latino Roots Celebration marked the fourth time UO students from Latino Roots classes (Anthro/SOJC)  have presented their ethnographic documentaries before an audience of peers, faculty, staff, and community, including many of the people whose stories are told in those documentaries. It was a huge turnout in the Knight Library Browsing Room, filled with the festive music of Springfield High School’s Mariachi del Sol and the appreciative and off-time eloquent remarks of featured speakers, including UO President Michael Schill, SELCO Community Credit Union Vice President Laura Illig, PCUN Secretary-Treasurer Jaime Arredondo, Oregon Center for Education Equity Director Carmen Xiomara Urbina, and others.

This year’s celebration also included the launching of the inaugural Latino Roots Awards given to our community partner SELCO Community Credit Union and Vice President of Marketing Laura Illig, and to UO Senior Vice President and Provost Scott Coltrane. The spirit of the Latino Roots Award is to recognize a member and/or institution from the community for their support and commitment to Oregon’s Latino community through the Latino Roots Project, and to recognize a representative from the University of Oregon for service, commitment, and support to enhancing diversity on campus and promoting community engagement by way of the Latino Roots Project and the Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies.

Sponsors for the two-hour celebration included: Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies, Department of Anthropology, Office of the President, Office of the Vice President for Equity and Inclusion, School of Journalism and Communication, SELCO Community Credit Union, and UO Libraries.

Here is an excerpt from the remarks of Lynn Stephen, UO Distinguished Professor of Anthropology, who co-instructs the Latino Roots classes along with Gabriela Martínez, associate professor, UO School of Journalism and Communication.

Comments from Professor Lynn Stephen:

Welcome to a wonderful moment that brings together education, research, creativity, and public engagement. I am so proud to be a part of the team of faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students, librarians and archivists, research center staff, and film participants who were all a part of what we are bringing you here today.

Latino Roots began as a small collaborative project between Professor Gabriela Martínez, community consultants Guadalupe Quinn, and Patricia Cortez, the Lane County Historical Museum, and myself in 2008-2009, to mark the 150th anniversary of Oregon as a state. Latino Roots was our exhibit with panels, object exhibits, nine video stories, and a bilingual book that was seen by several thousand people in the museum.  There were exhibits on African-American history, Asian history and Native American history in Oregon to greatly broaden the settler colonial/pioneer narrative, white narrative that has dominated Oregon history. › Continue reading
