SUPERWOMAN CHICANA CD INSERT

This CD is dedicated to my mother, Francisca Molinar Velásquez, and to the memory of my father, John E. Velásquez and my brother, John Robert Velásquez.

Special thanks to my children--Bobby, Brandi and Angelo--who inspire me with their love; to my dear friends, my comadre Kay, Marty, Rocío, Linda, Guillermo Little, Eric, John, and G. Bermúdez--for always believing in me. And a special thanks to Laura and Victor for all their support. Also, this Superwoman Chicana CD would not have been possible without the help of God, la Virgen de Guadalupe and my Diné ancestors.

Cover Design by G. Bermúdez from I Used to Be a Superwoman.
