Abstract

This excerpt offers a collection of the myth and truth—often indistinguishable—behind The Royal Chicano Air Force, an artist collective that played a key role in the Chicano civil rights movement. Playing with ideas about the preservation of history and its perceived truth, the archives – a series of original artist books - blend Pre-Columbian and Western record-keeping practices with running historical references to make real the ongoing mythologizing of the group, and to offer alternative readings of California history and public space.
