Ethnic Studies for PRS? (POV Maganda)

Erick Maganda ('23), journalist May 10, 2022
I am Nahua, the descendant of the Aztec empire that ruled present day Mexico. I am a part of the biggest indigenous ethnicity in Mexico, yet I am invisible in the United States.  I am not a part of a federally recognized tribe, as my family does not originate from any of the 50 states. The most I am allowed to say is that I’m “Hispanic,” an extremely broad term, or other broad terms like "Latino" or "Latinx." Issues like these are of great importance to people like me, but are nearly always overlooked.
