Throughout Mexican history, Malinalli has been reviled for her betrayal of the Indian people. However, recent historical research has shown that her role was much more complex; she was the mediator between two cultures, Hispanic and Native American, and two languages, Spanish and Nahuatl.
Bursting with lyricism and vivid imagery, Malinche finally unveils the truth behind this legendary love affair.
