“How will you take care of her mind and her well-being while she is a student-athlete at your institution?” –Dania Cabello’s father, talking to the soccer coaches at the University of California, Berkeley, upon her daughter being offered a scholarship to play soccer for them.
In this episode, Lisa Bonta Sumii shares space with Dania Cabello. “Dania is a first-generation American-born daughter of political refugees from Chile and Mapuche. She is an accomplished Oakland-born artist, athlete (including former Cal Bears soccer player), entrepreneur, and educator. As a former professional soccer player, herbalist, and academic, she weaves her expertise to center healing as a practice that involves mind, body, and spirit. Her medicine is founded on participatory practices that re-engage the body as sites of knowledge production and healing. Her work invites audiences through herbal medicine, visual art, and physical movement – across space and time – to critically address issues of access, visibility, race, immigration, gender, and joy.” (source)
