Mujeres de Maiz (women of the corn) Is a women of color holistic artivist group founded in 1997 in East LA. Their mission is to bring together and empower diverse women and girls through the creation of community spaces that provide holistic wellness through education, programming, exhibition and publishing.

As an inter-cultural, intergenerational and interdisciplinary collective they have made that space from the stage to the page, the gallery to the streets, and ceremony and wellness world by sharing their own specific blend of mind, body, spirit and cultural work.
