THE LEGACY OF
EMILIANO ZAPATA.

Por Kotryna Staputyte


    INDICE

    Zapata’s legacy became that of a myth among communities who ritually observe his death and continue to use his ideals to challenge the state’s legitimacy.

    Zapata also became an object of a hero cult and gave the Revolution a single human face.

    Even his death was of question among his followers.

    Some denied that he was killed, while others accepted his death and began the tradition of gathering at this grave on the anniversary of his murder.

    Denying the death of a hero is a central part of what makes his image and life a long lasting cultural myth (Brunk).
