Shirley Romero Otero is a member of the Chicano Nation of Colorado. Their distinct history is over 400 years old; their ancestors were Mexican, Indian and Spanish and their territory, now in the Southwestern USA, was originally part of Mexico. They founded Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1598, years before English Pilgrims arrived on the Mayflower. (Alyssa Schukar/The New York Times)
