dc.description.abstractMexican American children of (im)migrants' experiences are misrepresented and subjected to deficit and xenophobic frameworks in schools and society. While studies focused on Latina/o youth and adolescents certainly exist, very little research is committed to the voices of Mexican American children−particularly children of (im)migrants in the Pacific Northwest. Drawing from critical ethnography and narrative inquiry, this exploratory case study examines the narratives of children but rather than focusing on the school setting as a learning environment, the author focuses on cherry orchards as a place for learning and that fosters culture, resistance, and "child-centered" conocimiento. This study intends to enhance researchers, educators, and community members' understandings of (im)migrant children's lives through a non-deficit approach that disrupts majoritarian narratives.en_US
