Curanderismo is a healing practice of mind, body and spirit. It is the indigenous medicine of the Americas, that many tribes have utilized integrative practices throughout time for healing. History and trauma with Indigenous communities forced the medicine to be practiced underground. A resurgence of traditions has allowed individuals and community to rediscover this way of living and healing with plants. We recognize that healing requires not only resiliency but rediscovering our authentic self. We witness this through the deity of Quetzalcoatl (The plumed serpent of transformation). Understanding this transformation is based on our ancestry: Accepting and Knowing who I am, allows me the grace to accept the unknown in my journey.
