“Jasón's Indian”: Mexican Americans and the Denial of Indigenous Ethnicity in Anaya's “Bless Me, Ultima”.
"Rudolfo Anaya's Bless Me, Ultima addresses the cultural pressures that caused Mexican Americans to deny their Indian heritage in the decades before the Chicano movement. Structurally, the novel mirrors those pressures by suppressing issues of Native American heritage and concealing them under the veil of the father-mother conflict."
