Chris Rodriguez is an educator, bombero, musician, and writer. For over ten years, he has been on a journey to heal the effects of colonization within himself and his communities. As a second generation Cuban/Puerto Rican in the United States, he was witness to how intergenerational trauma can manifest as assimilation and disconnection from our roots, our bodies, nature, and each other. Through his diverse professional and creative roles, he works to heal this trauma through art, ritual, education, storytelling, and Community-making.
