Please closely consider the word â€œcommunity.â€ The word â€œcommunityâ€ is central and linked to the â€œroot ideaâ€ that is expressed in the founding document of Chicano Studies, El Plan de Santa Barbara. As we bring this quarter to a close describe how â€œcommunity self-determinationâ€ is the ethos of the root idea, â€œChicano.â€ What defines â€œcommunityâ€ and how have Fregoso, Chabram, Moraga, Galarte, Sandoval, Perez-Torres, and Luna articulated their vision for how community should be defined/envisioned/created. If community sel-determination is the method that unites Chicano engagement, as stated in EPDSB, what ideas/characteristics/methods hold this community together?
