#21 - Chiquita Brujita, Conjurer of Fiestas

Chiquita Brujita is a third generation Nuyorican Bruja, a performance artist, and a “conjurer of fiestas.” She is the creator of the magical merchandise brand Brooklyn Brujeria where she sells prayer candles and other items for the modern witch. She has also devised her own divination system based on the Mexican Lotería card game. As a dancer and event producer she has collaborated with such institutions as the Brooklyn Museum, El Museo del Barrio, and Bushwick’s House of Yes, and her work has been featured by Remezcla, NYLON, and other fine publications. On this episode, Chiquita discusses party magic, the transformative power of dance, and why it’s important to maintain joy during times of struggle. Pam also talks about Thanksgiving rituals and ways to use gratitude as a spell.
