On October 4th, from 3:00 to 4:30 pm, the Wilson Center’s Mexico Institute, in collaboration with the Denver Art Museum, will host a virtual exhibit and panel discussion on Traitor, Survivor, Icon: The Legacy of La Malinche, which explores the role of La Malinche from a feminist perspective, challenging the traditional view of this historical icon as a traitor.
