Q&A with Ray Naranjo

Executive Chef, Indian Pueblo Cultural Center Interview and Photos by Stephanie Cameron Executive...

Today is Cinco de Mayo! Celebrate with Little Toad Creek, our #OfficialEdiblePartner, at their Las Cruces or Silver City locations. Or if you can’t be there, you can still toast the day with one of their tasty Mixed-Up Mules. . ⁠. ⁠

While we are sipping on our margaritas we will be thinking about this and honoring Cinco de Mayo:⁠
Cinco de Mayo represents the anniversary of Mexico’s victory against the French forces of Napoleon III at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862.⁠
The defeat of Napoleon III's troops was a strong statement against colonialism, and prevented French from being more involved in the U.S. Civil War.⁠
This holiday has been commercialized and Americanized, obscuring its true historical significance.⁠
We honor today by standing in solidarity and respecting Mexican and Latinx culture.⁠

Thank you @antiracismdaily for sharing and engaging us in these valuable conversations.
