This chapter addresses the considerable time and energy that Anglos spent racializing themselves. It focuses on bodily comportment and racialization. Rather than having a focus on the supposed inadequacies of the body practices of Indian and Hispano racial others, however, the chapter describes Anglo embodiment. Anglos, after all, to demonstrate their superiority, needed to point out both the failings of Indian and Hispano bodies and the successes of Anglo bodies.

Keywords:   Hispanos, racialization, body practices, Anglo embodiment, New Mexico
