13 TOJ FIRE CEREMONY

Private ceremony. The fire ceremony was conducted to make offerings to the Ajaw and the Nawal of Toj.

RITUAL OF DESCENDANTS

This altar was created for the Nepantla Spora benefit exhibition for and by POC Fungi in San Diego, California. The altar represents the past and present co-existing. In the top panel we envisioned our ancestors as fungi in ceremony calling to us in the present to awaken to our indigeneity and our collective liberation.
