Abstract:

Literary Nonfiction. California Interest. Asian & Asian American Studies. Women's Studies. We Are No Longer Babaylan is comprised of creative nonfiction lyrical prose, about family, origins, identity, and femininity. The collection explores the impact of colonialist patriarchal societies on the live and beliefs of those from a spiritual, matriarchal society; the impacts of these mystical and spiritual beliefs on today's feminist movement, on healing from trauma, and on remembering ancestors in an increasingly memory-less society. --
