This is why I love her writing...

So, don't give me your tenets and your laws. Don't give me your lukewarm gods. What I want is an accounting with all three cultures-white, Mexican, Indian. I want the freedom to carve and chisel my own face, to staunch the bleeding with ashes, to fashion my own gods out of my entrails. And if going home is denied me then I will have to stand and claim my space, making a new culture-una cultura mestiza-with my own lumber, my own bricks and mortar and my own feminist architecture." (Anzaldua, 21-22)

From Gloria Anzaldua, Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza, San Francisco: Aunt Lute Press, 1987.
