“La comunidad jenízaros en EE.UU. busca retomar sus raíces Jenízaros es el nombre que los españoles dieron a un grupo de personas en tiempos de la colonia, quienes además de haber sido esclavizadas, perdieron su identidad indígena. Una identidad que ahora tratan de recuperar junto con su lugar histórico en Estados Unidos.”
“The Genízaro community in the USA seeks to retake its roots. Genízaro is the name that the Spaniards gave to a group of people in colonial times, who in addition to having been enslaved, lost their indigenous identity. They now try to recover their indigenous identity along with their historic place in the United States.“
