MamaCoatl is a barrio poet, songstress, performance activist, and spiritual healer who comes from the Yaqui people of the Sonora desert. Based in the Mission district, her work explores sound, ritual and cultural activism as power sources for public health.

Among the projects she has collaborated on are Rwanda Women’s stories of survival, and La Mama de Bogotá en “Spiritus Migratorius” for San Francisco International Festival. She has shared the stage with poets Judy Grahn and Nina Serrano, musicians Holly Near and Linda Tillery. As a multidisciplinary artist she has curated ceremonies to heal the Amazon River Mother of God at the border of Boliva-Brazil-Peru, concerts for peace on places desecrated by femicide in Mexico’s highways and organized blessing days in city corners and public plazas in San Francisco. She has her M.A. in Women’s Spirituality from New College of California and MFA in Creative Inquiry.

MamaCoatl JpegMusically, MamaCoatl’s fusion of Latin sounds, Spoken Word, and Electro acoustic genres demonstrate different aspects of her background. Her debut album Border Crossing Diosa is a historical document of poetry, prayer, and protest.

In 2006 MamaCoatl brought International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and Girls to San Francisco after performances in Mexico and Peru. The event has become an annual celebration of healing and nonviolence including sixteen days of action, “artivism,” healing and education in the Mission district’s community.
