Latinidad has become an umbrella term for Latin American peoples, countries, and culture. It is a term for ethnicity that in its efforts to be inclusive, creates a monolithic framework that erases racial nuance and impact of systemic racism. It can be both deeply connecting and profoundly isolating based on your lived experience. How can we expect that identity term to do the work of community and knowing self? This workshop invites providers to explore and share stories of their own ethnic background/lineages. How do you connect to the stories of your people? We will give participants space and information to notice the limitations of these terms and invite them to see what is beyond those limitations. While all are invited, this workshop will center and focus on the stories of people of color from the lens of Latinidad and settler colonialism.
