In overlaying maps of the land with historic images of the people who lived there, Mesa-Bains has said, ”Memory can be seen as a political strategy in work that reclaims history for the community.  In a sense the art making inspired by the remembrances of the dead, the acts of healing and the reflections of the sacred can be seen as a politicizing spirituality.”
