Many have been thinking about the late Carrie Fisher and the movie role that made her famous: Princess Leia, the tough Star Wars fighter who helped save the Empire.

And there’s that iconic hairdo: two giant buns pressed against the sides of her head.

But for Alexandra de la Rocha, a big Star Wars fan, Princess Leia’s look doesn’t just take her back to a distant planet, but a distant relative: a fighter in the Mexican Revolution, part of the group of real-life revolutionaries who inspired those famous coiled buns.

The woman pictured above is Clara de la Rocha, a noted colonel in the Mexican Revolution (1910-1920), a movement against the long dictatorship of Porfirio Díaz. She is one of Alexandra de la Rocha’s ancestors — her dad’s distant cousin. She died in 1970.

She is known for a key 1911 battle in Sinaloa, in northern Mexico. "She actually crossed a river on horseback ... and was able to take out a power station in order to allow the rebel forces to attack during night without being seen," says the younger De la Rocha. "She was a grizzled woman, as her father was. They were mountain people, and were actually miners and owned a lot of land. They were business people." l

De la Rocha says her relatives became revolutionaries to fight "for their homeland and for their people." l

After Fisher's death, De la Rocha spotted the photo of her relative in a public Facebook post by Eric Tang, a University of Texas associate professor. He posted it after checking out an exhibit recently at the Denver Art Museum, titled “Rebel, Jedi, Princess, Queen: Star Wars and the Power of Costume.” It’s part of a traveling Smithsonian exhibit that goes deep into the Star Wars films’ designs.

It was this battle-worn, historical rebel that director George Lucas had in mind when he created Princess Leia for the first Star Wars film, released in 1977. In 2002, Lucas told Time magazine that he was “working very hard to create something different that wasn't fashion.” Inspiration came, as Lucas put it, from a "turn-of-the-century Mexico" and “kind of Southwestern Pancho Villa woman revolutionary look.” l

The soldaderas were considered an important part of Mexico’s rebel force.

¡Vamos Hacia La Vida! - Ricardo Flores Magón
On this day in 1873, libertarian #socialist #RicardoFloresMagón was born in Oaxaca, Mexico. #Magón was a journalist, activist, #revolutionary, and #anarchist theoretician. He organized with the Industrial Workers of the World (#IWW), the Partido Liberal Mexicano, and published the newspaper Regeneración. Magón was forced to flee #Mexico in 1904 for the United States where he would spend the rest of his life, half of his time in prison. In 1918, he published a manifesto opposing WWI which stated, “The death of the old order is at hand. It is being whispered in the bars, theatres, streetcars and homes, especially in our homes, the homes of those at the bottom.” This lead to his conviction under the Espionage Act of 1917. He would die in Leavenworth Penitentiary at the age of 48 under controversial circumstances. Today, #Magon is remembered as one of the principal thinkers of the #MexicanRevolution, and one of the most influential #anticapitalist theorists in the history of the Americas.
