Mario Lundes stands in his bedroom with his four-month-old daughter, Alexa Sky Lundes, in Los Angeles, California, in the fall of 2017. Mario, who was jumped into a gang at the age of 13, talked about his troubled past, his recovery and a second chance. “I had my little girl and I got married. All that trust, I built it, little by little with my family members. I’m grateful to be alive. I made some really bad decisions in my past. But it’s never too late. I do regret a lot of the stuff I did. I have to live with that.” This photo was shot #onassignment for @natgeo with @kchete77.

Photo by @ivankphoto | People wearing vintage clothing prepare to enter Eastside Luv, a bar in Boyle Heights, for a fashion show during a pachuco-boogie event in the summer of 2017. J.C. De Luna (@barriodandy), the organizer of the event, believes in style as resistance and the ability of the zoot suit and vintage clothing to empower people as they take pride in their roots. The two members of Thee Lakesiders (@theelakesiders), who are seen with De Luna in this photo, played music on stage to a full house. This photo was shot #onassignment for @natgeo with @kchete77.

Elvis Navarrete wears a hat, which his father brought back from Nayarit, Mexico, as he looks for weeds in an onion field in Wilder, Idaho, in the summer of 2017. These children of migrant farmworkers work the same fields as their parents, but only as a summer job. Latinos came to Wilder as migrant farmworkers in the second half of the twentieth century. Now, Wilder is 76 percent Latino, and in 2015 it had an all-Latino city council. This photo was shot #onassignment for @natgeo with @kchete77.

Karlita (@kchete77) and I are extremely excited and proud that our work on Latinos in America has been published in National Geographic Magazine (July 2018). We had the amazing support and guidance of Molly Roberts (@mollyarob)!!! Thanks so much to all the people we met in Los Angeles and Wilder, Idaho!!! At a time when immigrants are demonized by the current administration, it is more important than ever to celebrate Latinx power!

***Yasuni Man - Thursday night***
Minihua Huani hunts with a spear while Omayuhue Baihua carries a shotgun near the Waorani community of Boanamo, bordering the Yasuni National Park, in Ecuador. The Waorani live in one of the most bio-diverse places in the world. There are also vast amounts of crude below the ground. The extraction of oil has continued to threaten the environment and the people of the Amazon for decades. This image was shot #onassignment for National Geographic. ***Excited to see Yasuni Man (@Yasuniman) Thursday night at the Harmony Gold Theater in Hollywood. The award winning film, by Ryan Killackey, will be accompanied by a Q & A. Check it out!!! Link for tickets in profile.
