Son of political activists in favor of the rescue of our indigenous roots, knowledge and sacred territories.

With collectives in Tijuana, Oaxaca and Mexico City, as well as in Chile, in some in the elaboration of community projects/workshops, with the intention of re-weaving the social fabric broken by structural violence, I also collaborated in the reappropriation of spaces abandoned for their political use in order to socialize knowledge and also in their politicization among the community. I currently participate in groups and organizations in support of the labor and humanitarian rights of undocumented people in the United States and Puerto Rico, creating workshops and talks that incite one way or another to counteract collective traumatization leading to its transformation into political action.
