Our old friend Chhoti Maa has but together an amazing show. In her own words:
Bruja literally means witch, but this word is often used as an insult, suggesting evil or bitchy behavior…this comes from colonization and machismo. For many years, the word Bruja was used to belittle, vilify and delegitimize traditional womyn healers / doctors /wise womyn.
Today, we use the word Bruja to challenge that colonial covering, to unearth and revitalize our connection to our Grandma healer ancestors who guide us and pass down sacred knowledge.
