dc.description.abstractHow do our own cultural-historical experiences in geographic spaces like the border(s) we occupy shape our identities, consciousness, positionality, and power? Using the <i>autohistoria-teoria</i> methodology, the intent of this manuscript is to explore my paternal grandmother&rsquo;s family, <i>Los Mart&iacute;nez&rsquo;</i> cultural historical experiences as descendants of <i>conquistadores</i>, who eventually lived along the Rio Grande-R&iacute;o Bravo del Norte, which is now the Texas&ndash;Mexico border. Archival data, including birth, marriage, and death certificates, land grants, maps, border crossing documents, published books, and family oral stories were used to establish a timeline and develop a narrative that spans across time and geographic zones that were originally indigenous, colonized by Spain, became M&eacute;xico, and for some of these territories eventually became part of the United States. I will share <i>Los Mart&iacute;nez</i>&rsquo; origins that begin in the Kingdom of the Navarre, their story as <i>conquistadores</i> and settlers in northern M&eacute;xico and Texas geographic areas that were part of Nuevo Espa&ntilde;a. The overarching theme I plan to capture is the fluidity of borders as figured worlds, but I also plan to highlight the formation of hybrid identities, consciousness, positionality, and power within the spaces/figured worlds that we occupy as both colonizer and colonized.
