Cimarrona

AFRO ECUADORIAN WOMAN AND SPIRITUALITY ongoing project


Cimarona is the female spirit that holds the African essence and expresses it in all forms of resistance against slavery and discrimination of blackness.
This is an ongoing project that documents women who keep ancestral and spiritual Afro-descendant practices in Ecuador, as an instrument of memory and cultural resistance of the diaspora in Ecuadorian territory.
The forced migration of black people has been historically forgotten, but actually groups of young people and women are rescuing their essence and expressing it in their daily life.
