There are a lot of misconceptions about coca because of the stigma created by the cocaine wars in Latin America and the Caribbean. I wrote this piece to challenge the mainstream narrative about coca and remind everyone that coca is sacred in my communities and we used it in medicine and ceremonies. This piece was published on Daughters of Madre Earth.
While my name everywhere is ThatNerdyBoliviane, I am also known as Lizzie Visitante. Pronouns: They/Them. I identify as an Queer Quechua (Mestize) person.
This blog is mostly dedicated to my rambles on anime, manga and other interests. While I will mostly be gushing about my favorite canon and AU MOGAI couples, my main focus will be a critical intersectional analysis on race, ethnicity, class, gender, queerness, etc. on all things I like.
