Beyond the Folkloric and Indigenous in Multicultural Thinking about Latin America.
Jupp, James C.
MultiCultural Review, v11 n1 p22-29 Mar 2002
Integrates the epistemology of cultural syncretism or "mestizaje" into multicultural thinking, instructional materials, and teaching about Latin America. Discusses the origins of white and black myths of the conquest; the centrality of "mestizaje" in Latin American culture; "mestizaje's" origins from the 16th-century spiritual conquest of Mexico; and cultural syncretism as a starting point in critical thinking about Latin America.
