A Prayer to Cleanse the Waters
Conceived as a community-driven, artist-activated botanical garden, Los Árboles que Llaman el Agua is created in collaboration and solidarity with the community of San José del Pacífico with the purpose of growing ideas that support the transition from an extraction economy to a regenerative one; acknowledging the Sierra Sur as a site of anticolonial resistance by honoring Zapotec histories, practices, and knowledge; modeling endemic plant reforestation methods for creating healthy, diverse forest spaces; and empowering community through equitable engagement and skill-sharing.
A Prayer to Cleanse the Waters is a setting of intentions; a commitment to encouraging biodiversity, bioremediation, and the advancement of decolonial theory and practice through creative action.
