As a Xicana Indigena Nepantlera, I do my best to cultivate, bridge, and create spaces for community to gather, reflect, and prepare comidas that center around our Indigeneity. This is critical to me for it is part of the process of decolonization and beyond. To arrive here, I have had to walk on many roads, all leading into the same direction, just some more rough than others. I am very blessed and honored to share my palabra, dreams, visions, testimonios, and ways of knowing and thinking with you, community, and with my familia. Prior in becoming a sociocultural and I will add, alterNative anthropologist, with a focus on midwifery herstories, indigenous womb-ecologies and taste memories, the politics of baby food and reproductive health care, mothering, and Indigenous nutrition/food ways in Los Angeles; I dedicated myself (and still do) to speaking, leading workshops and cooking demonstrations, and blogging on decolonizing the diet on the Decolonial Food For Thought blog. My work today is an extension or more so, another matrix of decoloniality and I will stress, my ultimate passion is to decolonize our babies' bodies…to go beyond this is to reindigenize or simply keep indigenization as the dominant craving which keeps our communities healthy and strong in la ceremonia of food and by doing so, we keep ourselves accountable to all our relations.
