Leticia is an interdisciplinary artist, cultural organizer, and yoga instructor. Her work history has varied, but the continuous theme is service and offering compassionate support rooted in liberation and social equity. Leticia’s artistic practice is centered on reimagining our relationship to our past as Black, Indigenous, and people of color and inspiring the possibilities of our future as culture creators and stewards of Pachamama (Mother Earth). Leticia is dedicated to establishing spaces that honor and value our nuances and multiplicities and they trust that when we center art, ancestral knowledge, and a balanced relationship to breath, we get free!

 

Alternate ROOTS supports the creation and presentation of original art that is rooted in communities of place, tradition or spirit. We are a group of artists and cultural organizers based in the South creating a better world together. As Alternate ROOTS, we call for social and economic justice and are working to dismantle all forms of oppression—everywhere.
