Ofrenda Magazine is a digital and print publication that explores Xicanx and Latinx spirituality, earth-centered wisdom traditions, social and earth justice, and healing arts. We share wisdom from our community for the health of people and planet.
In Ofrenda, you'll find creative and informative works from a wide range of Xicanx (Chicana/x/o), Indigenous, Latinx, and Afro-Latinx contributors, including writers, artists, poets, healers, curanderx, activists, and those who celebrate their perspectives.
The magazine was founded as una ofrenda—an offering—to the community, to seekers and practitioners, to our ancestors, to the earth, and to the many generations that will follow us. May our healing and self care be their wellness.

Ofrenda began on the ancestral lands of several Indigenous peoples, including the Council of the Three Fires—the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Potawatomi Nations—as well as the Miami, Ho-Chunk, Menominee, Sac, Fox, Kickapoo, and Illinois Nations. We offer our respect and gratitude to the Indigenous peoples who live in northern Illinois and whose ancestors inhabit that place.
Ofrenda now operates on the ancestral lands of the Chumash people. We’re grateful for the beauty of this land and the ocean nearby; we offer our respect and gratitude to the Chumash people and their ancestors for infusing this land with their energy, love, and care. We are committed to supporting landback initiatives that restore ancestral lands to the Chumash people.
