Transcript CHICANO WEEK-20TH ANNIVERSARY An Examination Of Mexican Culture ""^^ "Hi L-os Casanovas de Lupe Ariazola and Mariachi Mexico '85 entertain the crowd during "Plaza de Amor." Dr. Tatcho Mindiola, Leonel Castillo, State Representative Roman Martinez and Dr. Arnoldo DeLeon display copies of his newly released book, "Ethnicity in the Sunbelt." Photo by Hugh Tom Chin. T he sweet sounds of mariachi horns and guitars wafted from the Satellite to open up Chicano Week. As students gathered, opening ceremonies for a UH tradition began with student and faculty speakers. This year's theme focused on the 20th anniversary of Chicano Week. Since 1969, Chicano Week has been a sporadic tradition at UH, with the event not going on for a few years while picking up again later. In recent years, Chicano Week has become an examination of Mexican culture, its facets and the world around it. Eddie Garcia, president of Concilio de Organizaciones Chicanas said getting the speakers together for Chicano Week was a matter of networking. "We knew a lot of the people (who were guest speakers or performers from the other conferences or meetings or through mutual contacts). Other people always want to be involved in Chicano Week." Planning the event started in January, when the student organizers got their ideas for topics together and bounced them off each other. The idea-makers took the initiative, and got in contact with the person they were interested in bringing to the event. Professors from all over the state as well as UH were organizers' main concern. These included Arnoldo DeLeon of San Angelo Universtiy's Department of History, who signed copies of his new book Ethnicity in the Sunbelt: A History of Mexican Americans in Houston and History Professor Emma Perez of the Uni versity of Texas-El Paso, who discussed the history of Mexican- American women in Houston. At the Mexican-American Studies Symposium, several UH faculty gathered to give presentations about Mexican-Americans in Houston and America. Sociology professor Nestor Rodriquez had just completed a four- year study of Central Americans' impact in Houston and lectured on the topic "Mexican-American/Latino Immigrant Relations." Mexican- American Archives Director Thomas Kreneck presented Del Pueblo: A Pic- torial History of Houston's Hispanic Community. Chicano Week also attracted the fine arts. Mariachis appeared at opening ceremonies at the Satellite. El Teatro Bayuco performed It Started on the Picket Line: the Roots of Teatro Chicano. It was the troupe's first performance at UH. Jesus "Chuy" Negrete and mariachis also performed at the Satellite in "Plaza de Amor." The band Latin Image performed for the annual dance held in the Houston Room of the Universtiy Center. Garcia discounted the shadow of doubt cast over the 20th anniversary label. "We chose to call it the 20th anniversary because that's what it is. It's almost like with a 20th wedding anniversary — it's still 20 years even if you might not have celebrated each one," he said. Chicano Week's programming was the biggest ever, he said, citing the diverse speakers and shows. -Frank San Miguel 6 REC°Peni"9 PET
