My name is María Dorsey. I am a member of Idle No More SF Bay, a volunteer with Amazon Watch, a signer of the Indigenous Women of the Americas Defending Mother Earth Treaty, a massage therapist, an artist and
a two spirit woman trying to find her place here in the world. *Through this blog you will be able to follow my footsteps as I return to South America, specifically Ecuador to live with Gloria Ushigua Santi and the
Sapara Nation in the Amazon. I was adopted with my sister from Colombia by my parents who raised us in Urbana, IL. I am consulting with my parents about having my adoption records opened so I can find out any information there might be about my biological family as this journey began with me trying to find my people and where I came out of the Earth from. Join me on my journey of reconnection and joy while also staying informed on the work Gloria Ushiga Santi as we continue to spread how the government is essentially colluding with the oil interests of China. If this continues it will surely poison the soil, the water, the air, disturbing sacred burial sites and endangering the very existence of multiple tribes not only the Sapara Nation. Welcome to my journey, I'm happy to have you with me.

I am a member of Idle No More SF Bay, a volunteer with Amazon Watch, a signer of the Indigenous Women of the Americas Defending Mother Earth Treaty, a massage therapist, an artist and a two spirit woman trying to find my place here in the world. I formed a deep bond with Treaty sister, Gloria Ushigua Santi when she was in the San Francisco Bay Area to participate in the Refinery Corridor Healing Walks in 2017. I am currently living with Gloria and her community deep in the Amazon of Ecuador. I plan on living there until August of this year.
