Watch "We Are the Medicine! The Feminine Power to Heal Our Communities. Three Perspectives, Three Hearts, One Medicine."
"We Are the Medicine" is a video recording of a powerful, healing talk featuring speakers Patricia Chicueyi Coatl, Dr. Fuifuilupe Niumeitolu, and Pepe Santamaría. These three hearts shared their words and medicine as a fundraiser for the Indigenous-women-led Sogorea Te’ Land Trust.

An Introduction to the event from Patricia Chicueyi Coatl:
Huchiun (also known as San Francisco Bay Area), the land of the Lisjan/Ohlone people, is a place where millions of us guests have found refuge, a home, a land that protects us and cares for us. Millions of us guests are femmes surviving, trying to find a better life for our families, children, and ourselves. But being in survival mode seldom allows us to gather and sit together, as our abuelitas did around the tlecuil, the kitchen fire, where they would “echar tortillas,” or make handmade tortillas, and cook, talk, share, laugh, and cry.
With the beautifully healing opening prayers of Corrina Gould, the Chair of the Lisjan/Ohlone people, this is one of the few occasions, if not the first, when three femmes from very different backgrounds, guests to this land, have sat together, virtually, to share their experiences, words, backgrounds, and tears—as their abuelitas did—finding so many similarities between them, despite their different backgrounds.
Get the video of the full gathering, including talks by Dr. Fuifuilupe Niumeitolu, Patricia Chicueyi Coatl, and Pepe Santamaría. Let us femmes continue gathering so that we can share from our hearts!
