Felicia Cocotzin Ruiz (Tewa/Xicana) shares the Medicine of the People, and weaves together stories of Indigenous wisdom with the intention of her dishes, applying “Culinary Medicine,” as named by one of her Maestras (teachers). Curanderas are traditional healers, who carry the knowledge of foods, herbs and other cultural remedies working with the body, mind and spirit. Curanderismo has been practiced throughout the Americas for over five hundred years, with each healer offering a unique skillset applying their natural gifts, training or cultural practices. With permission from her elders, Felicia shares her work with others through private consultations, workshops and ceremonies. (Photo Credit: Nicky Hedayatzadeh)
