"Americans" is a multi-generational portrait of two sisters and their ancestral heritage, on both the (U.S.) American and Mexican sides. This is actually a conceptual piece about heritage and migration. The sisters stand against a tree, half of which is an American Oak the other a Mexican Oak. In the distance on the low horizon, one side shows the British ship Mayflower, and the other the Spanish ship Santa Maria, both showing European immigration to the Americas. But at the base of the tree lies a decorated Mixtec skull, referring to the girls' oldest American ancestors. In their Oaxacan father's words, "We've always been here."
