"Ella: Women in EZLN” History Exhibit

“Ella: Women in the EZLN” focuses on the roles of the women involved in the Ejército Zapatista de Liberación Nacional (EZLN) in Mexico. This bilingual museum exhibit shares their story, as told through their own words, and brings attention to a new audience in order to acknowledge their efforts and support their cause. A commitment to Indigenous paradigms and storytelling informed the creation of this exhibit as a way for the Tzotzil, Tzeltal, Tojolabal, Chol, Mame and Zoque peoples to hold greater control over their historical narratives and representation. It is with great hope that the stories of these amazing mujeres may challenge and redefine how we view Mexican, Mexican American and Indigenous women.  

Exhibit space is available for viewing until June 7th. Please email curator, Diana Espinoza at despinoza@unr.edu, to make an appointment.
