Expedition Through Aztlán by David Sanchez
Signed by the Author, Founder and Former Prime Minister of the Brown Berets
”In Aztec language, Aztlán literally means the "white land." Aztlán refers to the northwest provinces of the Aztec empire which we know today as the southwestern part of the United States. Many politicized Americans of Mexican descent have and still view Aztlán as the Chicano nation. Expedition Through Aztlán by David Sanchez documents an exciting, provocative period of contemporary Mexican American history which finds twenty-six Brown Berets embarking on a political mission to over fifty barrios in the United States in the early 1970s.
