ABOUT TOJ + TIJAX:
THE RITUAL OF MYTH MAKING
We are queer diasporic seeds of Iximulew (Guatemala). We call upon the sacred healing of Tijax and we give offerings to the sacred fire of Toj.
Toj + Tijax (pronounced toh and tee-hash) is our commitment to create a space for healing based on our indigenous Maya cosmology and cultural practices. We are building a botanica for 2STQBIPOC (2 Spirit, trans, queer, Black, indigenous, and people of color) community healing through herbal medicine and other spiritual tools for our collective liberation. In collaboration with other indigenous healers our intention is to offer community healing events, including altar making, limpias, Nawal workshops, and so much more. Toj + Tijax is our offering and invitation to all indigenous people to (re)claim their healing practices.
We heal ourselves to transform our communities.
We thank the Ajaw (Creator), ancestors, and the Nawales of the sacred Chol'qij for allowing us to hold this space.
