I learned about Indigemama right after I came back from a trip to my hometown in South America. I had been facilitating knowledge shares on reproductive justice, radical sex education and sharing traditional or abuelita medicine. When I came back, I was exhausted and looking for something new and refreshing. I learned about Matriz y Concha and decided to take the workshop, I am so happy I did! Matriz y Concha introduced me to womb massage, a beautiful and important tool for those of us interested in holistic and traditional health. After that, I was an assistant for Indigemama’s Intensive Womb Massage course and then participated in the Advance Womb Massage session. Panquetzani’s teachings have given me a great foundation to continue researching and learning about internal massage traditions in Abya Yala. As a full spectrum birthworker, student midwife, educator and Reproductive justice organizer, I feel honored to learn from Indigemama. Panquetzani is a traditional medicine woman who has learned her craft from abuelas y señoras and continues to transfer knowledge to future generations.
