Alessandro Questa, Mellon Indigenous Arts Fellow and UVA Ph.D. candidate in Anthropology, presents his research with Masewal indigenous farmers in central Mexico in relation to a series of 17th century indigenous manuscripts that have been preserved in a church there. Questa states, "The documents in question are an extraordinary sample of historic indigenous visual art, documentation and conceptualization of their territory. My research now is devoted to understanding what these documents mean for Masewal people today."
