Yanawana Herbolarios is a woman led and Indigenous founded organization. Not collectively affiliated with any specific nation, our team members come from ancestries such as Chichimeca, Cherokee, Eastern Creek, and Lumbee. We established ourselves in January of 2016 to meet unaddressed needs in the areas of healthcare and preparedness in the underserved communities of Bexar (and surrounding) Counties, with a special focus on BIPOC communities.
Yanawana Herbolarios strives to reclaim our inherent sacred connection to live in agreement with the land. Each of our actions is in service to this cause, therefore we put all of our collective intentions towards facilitating a resurgence of daily partnership and intimate relationship with the land. We share our experiences with our relations to walk hand in hand on this journey; reconnecting communities through gardening, foraging, medicine making, health, clean water, and fellowship. In everything we do, we connect back to grandmother earth.
When we designed the Yanawana Herbolarios logo, we were inspired by the Healing Hand. Drawing on this influence, and that of the sacred waters and plants around us, the Yanawana Herbolarios logo represents all we are and wish to become. The palm features the traditional spiral found on the Healing Hand, but the Yanawana Herbolarios logo includes the Healing Waters of the Yanawana River. Each finger on the Yanawana Herbolarios logo incorporates a vital healing plant, rooted in life itself. The Yanawana Herbolarios logo encourages and supports us on our journey of sustainability.
We invite you to learn more about our leadership and teams that are comprised of uniquely skilled volunteers who collectively embody the spirit of Yanawana Herbolarios. Together, we can create the communities of tomorrow.
