About the Session
Novelist Ingrid Rojas Contreras comes from a lineage of curanderos—healers who used herbs, dreams, stories, and exorcisms to treat illness and suffering. Women were not allowed into this lineage, until Rojas Contreras’ mother created a space for herself in this male-dominated tradition. Join Rojas Contreras as she presents the keynote on the enforced silence of women, memory, and the power of story in recasting the world around us.
