Chicano Folklore: An A-Z of Beliefs, Rituals, Folktales, and More (Hardback)

£75.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

From cultural icons like Americo Paredes to the traditional Mexican birthday song, Las Mananitas, this book provides an A-Z guide to Chicano folklore, including cultural icons, foodways, music, and much more.



Chicano folklore reflects a syncretism of indigenous and Spanish culture. Despite countless Spanish terms or titles, native beliefs also serve as the backbone of Chicano culture.























This book covers a wide range of areas on Chicano folklore, such as historical topics, contemporary beliefs, and secular concepts, as well as religious beliefs and iconography. It covers such a wide range of concepts that readers may learn about cultural beliefs, such as children's fears of La Llorona or El Cucuy, alongside religious beliefs, such as the centrality of the Virgen de Guadalupe and folk saints like Juan Soldado.





















Features more than 200 reference entries on Chicano folklore









Includes images depicting Chicano cultural life
