Curanderiando: Tales of Healing

In beautiful and unique pairings of English with Spanish, mysticism with wisdom, and indigenous storytelling with dance, Curanderiando: Tales of Healing, is bound to make for a magical evening. The night will begin with traditional stories of Native American healers ([email protected]), told by Carolina Quiroga-Stultz, a renowned Colombian Social Communicator who graduated in 2013 with a Masters in Storytelling from East Tennessee State University. Blended ingeniously with dance, these stories are adapted from across the pre-Columbian landscape, from the Maya (Guatemala), the Sapalla (Bolivia) and the Mapuches (Argentina). Following the storytelling, there will be an exciting presentation on Curanderismo (traditional healing arts) by local anthropologist Elizabeth De La Portilla and yerbero (herbalist) Jacinto Madrigal. Taken as a whole, the evening presents an important chance to celebrate and learn from ancient wisdom by considering it from multiple angles: the mythical and the anthropological.
