Ultima, La Curandera: Understanding the Role of Herbalism in Chicanx Culture

Ultima, La Curandera: Understanding the Role of Herbalism in Chicanx Culture. Plants have been an essential life source for the Chicanx community throughout the generations, and have provided us and our ancestors with an immeasurable amount of support. Using Rudolfo Anaya's "Bless Me, Ultima", in this workshop we will discuss the important role of plants in Chicanx culture, the role they have played in sustaining and regenerating our community, and in the practice of curanderismo shared in the book. We will share some ways in which we can all re-member our relationship with our plant relatives and the ancestral knowledge they carry. We will also highlight plants that are key in many cultural practices and can be easily introduced into your self-care routines, as well as their many uses. Thursday April 8, 2021, 9 AM to 10 AM, Zoom ID: 91579573477

We The Future Conference

We the Future Conference, April 16th at 9 AM featuring Boots Riley. Click to learn more. Santa Rosa Junior College and North Bay Organizing Project (NBOP) invite proposals for workshops, presentations, panels, and performances for our 4th annual We the Future Social Justice Conference, which will be held virtually on Friday April 16, 2021 via Zoom. We encourage proposals related to this year’s theme, “Power in Numbers.” Exploring the intersections of community and organizing in the broadest sense, we welcome hands-on and interactive sessions from across disciplinary and theoretical frameworks. The power of community and organizing comes in many forms! The power of equity and coalition building across differences. The power of mass mobilization in defending democracy, which must be actively cultivated and never taken for granted. The power of counting and being counted, both literally (as in vote counting and census taking) and figuratively (as in asserting that each individual – YOU! – matter!). The power of mathematics and science as tools for social justice. The power of statistics to make visible the uneven impacts of COVID-19 and inequities in housing, education, work, and so many other stories about who we are and what we need to change. And finally, the power of collectivist worldviews to imagine beyond the hyper-individualism that has led to so many injustices in our world. We welcome the many perspectives and approaches present in our community, and we especially appreciate submissions that are interactive, student-centered, and activity/action-oriented in their approach. Our keynote speaker is Oakland’s own Boots Riley, who has two claims to fame: he is the lead MC for the legendary political hip-hop group The Coup and director of the 2018 film Sorry to Bother You, a dark comedy that delivers an extraordinary critique of American capitalism and racial exploitation. He was named “one of the 10 most influential people of 2002” by Vibe magazine. More recently, he won the prestigious Independent Spirit Award
