Luis Garzo´n was a Mexican musician who immigrated to Minneapolis in 1886 and opened a small
Mexican grocery store in St. Paul in the 1920s. Set in the midst of U.S. deportations of Mexican
Americans in the early 20th century, “Tienda” explores the immigrant experience: what must be left
behind and what cannot be forgotten on the journey to a new home.
