Unidos Homeschool Cooperative

Chicana of indigenous descent and daughter of Jarocha immigrant mother is the foundress of Unidos Homeschool Cooperative & Tiendita Raíces y Alas based in Santa Ana, CA. She is mother to Trans and Non-Binary semillas. Marlha knew from a young age through dreams that she would be a healer, writer and teacher. She began her study and training in tarot, medicine making and ceremony as a teen and has kept up her practice and community offerings for over 13 years.  Marlha holds close the idea that spirituality cannot exist in good balance without action and presence in our communities. After becoming a mother she saw a need for deeper connections, founding Unidos as a way for families to work, parent, and homeschool together, building much needed support systems. Unidos centers thriving parent/child relationships, cultura and activism in our larger communities. Now in its 6th year, Unidos has expanded to host online classes twice weekly, with downloadable seasonal curricula and read alouds on their YouTube Channel.
