A Healing Festival in Albuquerque

dju-20160910_nmcf_330-05

At the request of NewMexicoWomen.org, on Saturday I photographed the 8th Annual Dona Predicanda Perea Encuentro de Medicina Traditional at the Westside Community Center in the South Valley of Albuquerque. The daylong event was co-sponsored by Kalpulli Izkalli and unOccupy Albuquerque: Medicine for the People. Kalpulli performed a healing ritual for about 100 people and a blessing for the elders to start the day off, and there followed free, traditional healing treatments, food and music.
