lara pacheco (they/them, /she/her) is a Taíno, Latinx mamita that believes part of our collective liberation is accessed through decolonizing ourselves and weaving into the web of ancestral medicine. lara directly works through this realm with plants, fungi, puppets, music and dance. When not caring for their family, land and creatures, lara runs Atabey Medicine of Seed and Thistle Apothecary, an educational resource that centers Queer, Trans and Gender fluid Black and Indigenous voices within herbalism (now transitioning into Moon & Mirror BIPOC Apprenticeship). lara is a Qigong student with the Ling Gui International Healing Qigong School and a third year student with POCA Tech Liberation Acupuncture program to further help bring access to care for everyone.

lara will be teaching at the Caribbean Herbal Symposium in February 2023
