(p.174) Chapter Eight Conclusion: Birth of a Coyote Nation
Coyote Nation
University of Chicago Press

This chapter points to the implications of the study made in this book for broader understanding of modernity, imperialism, Chicana/o history, and the intersections of race and sexuality in American history. This conclusion addresses some of the inherent unsettling aspects of colonial rule, the pervasive anxiety of imperialism and the spots where the hasty patchwork of empire was at its most obvious. Covered beneath a new colonial order, New Mexicans tossed and turned against each other in the disorder and turmoil following the arrival of the railroad in 1880. A final conclusion of Coyote Nation therefore is that contemporary America may have much to learn from borderlands regions such as turn-of-the-twentieth-century New Mexico. Indeed, postmodern America—unsettled, polyglot, brimming with the mongrel and hybrid—should heed the modern howls of a coyote New Mexico.
