Chapter 1 offers readers a more general understanding of the significance of Our Lady of Guadalupe in México and the United States. It introduces the traditional story, dating back to the 16th century, when Our Lady of Guadalupe is said to have appeared to a Nahua man by the name of Juan Diego and charged him with the task of asking the local Catholic bishop to build a hermitage in her honor. The author follows with a general overview of Our Lady of Guadalupe in history, theology, US politics and the entertainment industry, Chicana feminist thought, and her influence in Latina/o communities in the United States today.

Keywords:   December 12, Tepeyac, Nahua, lived religion, Mexican Catholic imagination, intersectionality, theology, religious studies, Chicana feminism, Tonantzin
