In Leslie Marmon Silko's Almanac of the Dead, notions of Mexican identity are deconstructed. This article analyzes how Silko, through a variety of characters and sub-plotlines, brings to the surface hidden tensions in the contsruction of Mexican identity through the melding of the sangre limpia of the conquering Spanish and the subjugated indigenous peoples of Mexico. It explores the implications of apocolyptic consequences of a reawakening of indigenous identity among Mexicans living on both sides of the Mexican-US border.
