A Mestizo is a person of mixed blood - specifically, a person of mixed European and American Indian ancestry. Historian Serge Gruzinski here offers a critique of colonization and globalization. Looking at the 15th century colonization of Latin America, Gruzinski documents the melange that resulted: colonized mating with colonizers; Indians joining the Catholic Church and colonial government; and Amerindian visualizations of Jesus and Perseus. These physical and cultural encounters created a new culture, a new individual and a phenomenon we now call globalization.
