The Wisdom of Cultural Heritage
Here, the artist shows an indigenous woman as a symbol of resilience and resistance to colonization and 500 years of imposed cultural values. With one foot stepping into the Latino Cultural Center (LCC), this woman awakens the people of the Americas to their past and its connection to the present. The role of the LCC is to mobilize the wisdom of cultural heritage for social change. The main message in this scene is that history is a powerful tool for making decisions about the present and helping us shape the future.
