|Indigenous Rememberings and Forgettings: Sixteenth-Century Nahua Letters and Petitions to the Spanish Crown|
Native American and Indigenous Studies, Vol. 5, No. 1, Spring, 2018, pp. 69-99.
Argues that while historical narratives have denied the Indigenous intellectual legacies in the written sphere, examples of Indigenous writing from around the world continue to surface in private and local collections. Focuses on letters penned by Nahuas nobles in which they highlighted certain aspects of their past and suppressed others as they maneuvered through the social, political and economic circumstances of the time.
