Grace is a student, practitioner, and teacher of Curanderismo indigenous healing practices. Born in Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico, Griselda, or Grace as she is better known, is Mexican, of Yaqui and Kumiai ancestry. Her “don” (Spanish for spiritual gift) was deeply influenced by the work of her aunt, a curandera, and an uncle who was a well-known sobador/huesero, bonesetter. Much later she undertook the formal study of ancestral healing traditions by undergoing traditional training with indigenous healers from various nations, in Baja California as well as the United States. Her formal apprenticeship and training in Native medicine ways began in 1995 with Yaqui/Lacandon Maya elder Tezkalci Matorral Cachora of Mexico.
