Annotation Between 1996 and 2006, anthropologist Counihan collected food-centered life histories from nineteen Mexicanas-Hispanic American women-from the small town of Antonito in the San Luis Valley of Colorado. The interviews in this study focused on southern Colorado Hispanic foodways-beliefs and behaviors surrounding food production, distribution, preparation, and consumption. Three lines of inquiry are framed: feminist ethnography, Latino cultural citizenship, and Chicano environmentalism. Some strong language. 2009. Some strong language.
