  • Analysis Of Deena J. Gonzalez's Essay Of Malinche

    interesting issue came up with legitimacy anyway. Being of mixed race put you into a set category. For example, being Spanish and native meant that you were a mestizo, not a native or a Spaniard because being a Spaniard was mutually exclusive. Shouldn’t this make even the Criollos in power illegitimate, especially when paintings of La Virgen depict her as white skinned up close, but depicted as brown from the back of the church? Gonzalez thus argues that Malinche was a great figure even next to Cortes and Moctezuma. She was an independent woman who got screwed over and screwed everyone back. Romero analyzes Malinche as a symbol in his essay, “Foundational Motherhood: Malinche/Guadalupe in Contemporary Mexican Chicana/Chicano Culture.” The Spanish committed an atrocity, so when one tries to find the reason as to why the Spanish conquered all that they had, the perfect scapegoat came in the form of Malinche. Under a Spanish patriarchy, a native woman, like Malinche, would have been the perfect scapegoat because she has none of the characteristics of those in power. Criollo elite supported this idea, because it took attention away from their identity as half Spanish. If everyone blames Malinche for the genocide of their people, no one will think twice about their current rulers posing as the Spanish that brought about the destruction of the Mejica. Feminists in the modern period see her as the mother of the mestizos, and claim that she is just a victim of the patriarchal…
