Who was Maria Sabina?
María Sabina Magdalena García (22 July 1894 – 22 November 1985) was a Mazatec curandera, who lived in Huautla de Jiménez, a town in the Sierra Mazateca area of the Mexican state of Oaxaca in southern Mexico. Her healing sacred mushroom ceremonies, called veladas, were based on the use of psilocybin mushrooms, particularly Psilocybe caerulescens, a sacred mushroom important to the Mazatecs. María Sabina’s veladas had a major comtribution to the popularization of indigenous Mexican ritual use of entheogenic mushrooms among westerners.
