About This Piece

Mural created by Adolfo Romero at Atzlan Theatre in Santa Fe Arts District. 

Artist’s Statement: 
This artwork is inspired by the recognition of our indigenous peoples throughout the Americas. In one part, the pain of colonization is expressed, and a detail of the Trail of Tears is represented. In the other half, you can see many symbols of indigenous peoples from around the continent including the myth of Aztlan and Aztec gods. This artwork is a tribute that seeks to value and express the voices of many native peoples who seek to be recognized.
