Comic Book Teaches Conflict Resolution, Indigenous Values

By Robin Loving Rowland

A pre-Hispanic princess loses her life over a broken treaty with the indigenous and is resurrected 500 years later to live her life over again to solve the problems of modern Mexico. While her world is black and white, her super power is to make life colorful for others, which she uses to help 11 characters who are searching for their dreams despite difficult circumstances. In the process, her friends learn conflict resolution through the application of indigenous values.

Whodathunkit? Isis Rodriguez is an internationally recognized cartoonist who has been inventing such things since childhood. After earning her BFA in painting, she studied with Walt Disney animators, and now educates and empowers youth through her art and classes. “We call our bilingual comics edutainment,” says Rodríguez, who works with her partner, Alfi López, who is proud of his Zapotec roots including oral and culinary traditions that go back 500 years. López earned a degree in graphic design and marketing and later studied culinary arts in Florence, Italy.
