MVCC Humanities faculty member Dr. Randy Conner discuses his research into the mixing of indigenous spiritual practice and Catholicism in the Americas. He discusses the idea of mestizaje which is the mixing of cultures and practices. He also discusses biculturalism which is living in two cultures at one time. This exploration of religious practice is part of our Celebrating Latino American programming. Learn more at our website at https://latinoamericans.apps.morainevalley.edu/.
