Rita Navarrete Perez and Tonita Gonzales, Traditional Healers/Curanderas

Together Rita and Tonita have a goal to empower others to become their own healers by listening to their own bodies. Over six years ago they opened La Cultura Cura, a non-profit community organization to promote the healthful wellbeing of an Otomi community. Rita is a professor of Traditional Medicine at Centro de Desarollo Humano Hacia la Comunidad in Cuernavaca, Mexico (CEDEHC). Rita and Tonita's goal is to educate others in Traditional Healing, and remind us that our ancestors have wisdom to their actions.
