Matriarch is kicking off its 4th year, tonight. Matriarch was so happy to host a viewing of an important film, Amá this week. Amá is about the forced sterilization of Indigenous women; a piece of our history that is often ignored. We were super lucky to have Pam Kingfisher and Charon Asetoyer lead discussion and we could easily have talked another 3 hours. If you have the opportunity to see the documentary Amá this fall, you won’t regret it.

Bought it after borrowing a friend's autographed copy. Very well written and has been very helpful in my genealogy research.

Living in New Mexico for 37 years it would not be possible to have never heard of Concha Ortiz y Pino de Kleven. Her formal name along brings attention to her and if you ever saw her you would remember her. Her life has been long and interesting but this book does not do her story justice. Perhaps it is because it is an "authorized" biography. I felt Concha was looking over the author's shoulder, or at least saying what was and was not to be included in this book. I really wished there were opinions and comments from others....not just words of praise. There are many contrasts and indeed contradictions in her life and these were not brought out. She was the first, or near first, woman in many situations yet she never identified herself with feminists nor supported the movement in the 70's. She always considered being "feminine" important, but what of the story of her interactions both political and social with leading feminists of her long life? This story is not told. There are hints of tensions within the Hispanic community (LULAC opposed some of her ideas), but not the story of her viz a viz La Raza and Chicanas in New Mexico. If this were not an authorized biography I think the tale would be richer and more informative and she would still come across as a very important figure in New Mexico.

The book is often repetative and needed a good editor to tease out the story.
