Semana de la Xicana Events! March 11th- 13th


Pi Lambda Chi, Sigma Lambda Gamma, Lambda Theta Nu, and UMAS y MEChA would like to invite to the 25th Annual Semana de la Xicana

A little background….In 1989, a group of womyn within M.E.Ch.A. started Semana de la Xicana. They recognized the need to address issues of la mujer in the Chicana/o community. It is now an annual event dedicated to celeberating Chicana identity and herstory.

Que Viva La Mujer!

Xicana Tiahui!

(Tiahui: Nahuatl for “always moving forward”)

This year we would like to emphasize the power that the arts have politically and how these different styles of arts give Xicanas a strong voice.

Join us in this year’s series of events:
