I believe in this. Healing our racialized trauma is essential, especially with regards to land itself being able to be a trigger for those with roots so strongly attached to it. Our original religion is our land. We truly lose our religion when we are cut from our Mother. I hope I can to make a project dedicated to the normalization of new age healing-rituals that combine the universes of our root mothers. The consumption of her fruits is as much a spiritual ritual as it is a need for survival. Thank you for your work and inspiration!
