Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo Forum


The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo from an Indigenous point of view has being an issue
that we of Texas Indigenous Council have conducted for 5 years this will be our 6th
Annual such event. It is a Panel type discussion with Q&A from the audience. Though
all Treaties signed between the U.S. and other Europeans or Native American Nations
on this Continent of the Americas had great consequences for the Indigenous
Communities the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo signed between the U.S. and Mexico is
dynamic and continues to mold the daily lives of Indigenous populations not Federally
recognized as Native Americans.The history of the development of Indigenous Societies
on our continent while varied has one great commonality,Invasion and Occupation.
Our very Identity is defined for us by the descendants of the Occupying Colonial
Powers. Come join us for this years Platica on the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.
This year we will be at Northwest Vista College. Call (210) 542-9271 for more info or Arthur Fuentes at (210) 348- 2000.
