An excerpt from Champagne Cowboys, the new thriller from Tucson author Leo W. Banks

Beaten and Busted

Rodriguez, also known as Dr. Cintli, is a professor at the University of Arizona’s Mexican American Studies department. He is an award-winning journalist, columnist and author. In 2014, he released Our Sacred Maiz Is Our Mother: Indigeneity and Belonging in the Americas, a book where he reports on the long history of corn and its relationship to Indigenous communities. That is where he first discovered the real meaning of Yolqui.
