Our Lady of GuadalupeDownloadable Video - 2004
In My Americas, Mexican American hosts Roberto Alcaraz and Leticia Vásquez travel into the rich cultural and spiritual life of Latin America in search of their heritage. In this program, Leticia visits Mexico City during the festival of the patroness of Mexico. She joins tens of thousands of pilgrims at the basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe and hears the story of the Virgin's apparition to Juan Diego, with its message of hope and dignity for the oppressed Aztec people, recently conquered by the Spanish. She learns about Aztec culture at the National Museum of Anthropology and meets a chinampero who introduces her to the canals where farmers still use traditional Aztec aquatic farming methods. Her tour ends with a group of women in a low-income suburb whose social activism embodies Guadalupe's message to Juan Diego.
