John Valadez and Ibarra’s documentary uses the construction and dedication of a monument to Spanish conquistador Juan de Oñate to examine his legacy in the Southwest. It raises complex questions about mestizo identity, on-going inequalities, the meaning of public art and the recognition of dignity and humanity of Native people.
