    On Becoming Chicana in the Midwest

    This study is a phenomenological exploration and§description of §Mexican American identity. I focus on the conditions§that made §possible my muted ethnic identity, in which although§I was a third §generation Mexican American, who was predominantly§raised by first §generation immigrants, I came to understand myself as§white. I also §focus on the process of decolonization that is§particular to my §experience in Northwest Indiana, a location to which§thousands of §Mexicans and many other immigrants migrated to work§in the steel §industry in the 1920s. By examining my own identity§constitution §through the intersection of race, class, gender, and§industry in §Northwest Indiana, I argue that those intersections§in that Midwestern §locale shaped an experience that is related to, but§significantly §different from, the far more thoroughly researched§comparable §experience in the Southwest. and one that shaped my§identity as an §industrial, insurgent Chicana.
