Long time Chicano nationalist and University of New Mexico Chicano studies professor,
Dr. Charles Truxillo, is not being offered a tenured position after 25 years of service to
the university. Dr. Truxillo is a founding professor of the Chicano Studies Dept.
“I know that it is my beliefs because they cannot come up with any other reason. The
administration said that they were looking for full-time tenure-track faculty. I qualify …
Why isn’t a position being offered to me?” asks Truxillo in an article written by Michelle J. Nealy
and published in the DiverseEducation.com website.
Dr. Truxillo, a true believer in an independent Chicano nation - state, has written several articles
on the subject and has been instrumental in forming the intelligentsia required to push for
Truxillo suffers from liver cancer and will may lose his health insurance as well. Termination
of the professor's position could, in effect, amount to a death sentence.
One of Dr. Truxillo's most famous articles calls for the formation of "La Republica del Norte"
by the year 2080. In it, he makes one of his most famous quotes: "It is the natural aspiration
of any peoples who achieve national consciousness to establish their own sovereign nation-states.
Dr. Truxillo is an expert on the Articles of Confederation. He claims that in it they give the
states sovereignty and that gives them the right to secede. The United States supported
cessation when Texas wanted out of the Mexican Republic but refused to allow its own
southern states to exit the union the way they entered it, peacefully.
Why is self-determination for Chicanos so important? Truxillo's answer is thought-provoking
''Among native-born American Hispanics, there is the feeling that we are strangers in our own land.
We remain subordinated. We have a negative image of our own culture, created by the media.
Self-loathing is a terrible form of oppression. …There has to be an alternative.''(1)
Also according to the DiverseEducation.com article, Nealy asks Truxillo about tenure:
“Tenure is based on a vote from my colleagues. Few are in favor of a Chicano professor
advocating a Chicano nation state,” Truxillo says.
