Abstract

My URECA project has centered around creating a poetry collection inspired by finding heritage and cultural community through life on the road around Northern Mexico and the U.S. Southwest. My original objective was to highlight the shared hopes and fears of my own family and the people I meet while on the road. I aimed to pay close attention to resisting ethnographic elements within this project so that my research and writing may resist coloniality while imparting intersubjective reciprocity via the sharing of stories and experiences through a consanguineous journey.
