Mate de Coca – [Daughters of Madre Earth]

Screen Shot 2020-03-12 at 7.21.43 PM

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.
