Learning to live such transformations calls for a “new mestiza” who has “a tolerance for contradictions, a tolerance for ambiguity,” who “learns to be an Indian in Mexican culture, to be Mexican from an Anglo point of view. She learns to juggle cultures. [. ] Not only does she sustain contradictions, she turns the ambivalence into something else” (Borderlands ). In turn, living in and rendering such contradictions and transformations calls for a new kind of writing style. In Anzaldúa’s case, this means a rich mixture of genres —she shifts from poetry to reportorial prose to autobiographical stream of consciousness to incantatory mythic chants to sketches and graphs, and back again—weaving images and words from her multiple selves and from many others into a kind of tapestry or patchwork quilt of language.

My ancestors were living life on the border. S. bought it, bought half of Mexico, and so the Anzaldúas were split in half. The Anzaldúas with an accent, which is my family, were north of the border. The Anzalduas without an accent stayed on the other side of the border, and as the decades went by we lost connection with each other. And so the Anzaldúas and the Anzalduas, originally from the same land, the state of Tamaulipas in the nation of Mexico, all of a sudden became strangers in our own land, foreigners in our own land.

So, when I try to articulate ideas, I try to do it from that place of occupying both territories: the territory of my past and my ethnic community, my home community, the Chicano Spanish, the Spanglish; and the territory of the formal education, the philosophical educational ideas, and the political ideas that I have internalized just by being alive. Both of these traditions are inherent in me.
