This chapter on the Chicano movement surveys its origins, history, and legacy. Most scholars date the years of the movement’s vibrancy from approximately 1969 to 1973. These dates, of course, are contested. A movement by definition is usually composed of various interest groups that coalesce for common ambitions and each accordingly has a stake in how the past is remembered, written, and preserved, and by whom. The Chicano movement, like many other movements, has a number of narratives and counter-narratives about its origins and decline.
