Encuentro- Honors class, Live Blog #2

Now the encuentro has officially begun, and it starts with two student speakers from the University of Washington. These students introduce the encuentro and preview the schedule. Thanks and recognition is given to the indigenous peoples whose land is inhabited by the university buildings. After the speakers are introduced, the audience is then asked to listen to the song of Sombrero Blanco, which is a song of aruna (a way to call people of Ecuador) and asked to explore this way of feminism. The lyrics to Sombrero Blanco are shown on the screen while the music is playing, in addition to the music video. After this video is shown, Black mama performs her song Queremos La Verdad, with Caye Cayejera.
