Title: Diosas Latinoamericanas para Colorear y Luchar | Latin American Goddesses for Coloring and Keep Up the Fight // Artist: Consuelo Terra & Carolina Sepúlveda // Date: June, 2020

This is an “activist”, spanglish and bilingual coloring activity for children and adults alike. The pages portrait powerful goddesses from Latin American native cultures related to advocacy causes that are more relevant in this pandemic context for LatinX and Hispanic communities: Latino identity, union and solidarity to resist and prevail in this crisis, embodied by the wise Maya goddess Q’ana Itz’am; Respect for immigrant families and protection of immigrant lives, represented by Aztec goddess Cihuacoatl; and a call to save and heal our Mother Earth, embodied in Pachamama goddess, now threatened by Climate Change. These Latin American Goddesses are a reminder that Latinos carry within ourselves the resilience of our ancestors and the knowledge of our rich and mixed cultural heritage. We got this. We have each other. We can survive this crisis, too.
