"When they ask you who you are...tell them you are many mountains moving. Tell them you are wind song. Tell them they should not have to ask. Tell them you do not have to answer."

Alicia

A Dedication

Ometeotl. This is a dedicated space in memory of, in acknowledgement of, in recognition of, and in the full awareness of my sister Alicia Cardenas, tattoo artist, muralist, cultural anthropologist, and blood-magic guru. She transitioned from the body on December 27, 2021 and joined the ancestral realm to which she was always tethered. I hope you are pleased with me sis. I hope I make you proud. You always made me proud. Still do. I see you star shine. I see you crow. I see you moon beam. I see you. Tlazocamati.
