Good Friday friends! Today at La Voz with Mariel Fiori is immigration and culture day.

In his column Books for the People, SUNY New Paltz literature professor Adolfo Béjar Lara talked about about the novel Mugre Rosa (Filthy Rose) by Fernanda Trías, winner of the 2021 Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz award.

And in her column, Talking about the Heart, What they didn't tell us, teacher Maritza del Razo commented on the International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples (declared by the UN as August 9) focusing on two women who were co-founders of the process of the State of Maine Wabanaki Truth and Reconciliation Commission for Child Welfare, Esther Attean and Denise Altvater. She recommended artist Robert Shetterly's Americans Who Tell the Truth page, and Attean's podcast, Dawnland Signals.
