“We’re going to have several guests and each one of them use their platform to speak about different issues especially given our present political climate. Some of them are youtubers, some of them are in podcast, some of them use the performance of being drag to go against what’s happening today,” Ortega said.
Also, Ortega is also working on his Ph.D. dissertation, “Novohispanic Franciscan Martyr Portraits of New Mexico: The Politics of a Hagiographical Misery."
“I study painting in the 18th Century in Mexico specifically. I’m looking at the mission system in the southwest of the United States and the struggles between the Native Americans and the Franciscans. I’m trying to highlight how Native American resistance is nothing new. It has been a thing for 500 years. And if it wasn’t for that, I think the Spanish would have gone all the way to Alaska.” he said.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
