Samaria Polet Carias Ayala

Oiii! U latan nan Samaria ina! Greetings! My name is Samaria. I am a Black and Native Central American artist from Honduras. I am passionate about human rights, environmental justice, and healing for communities of color. I currently reside in Honduras, working on my Master in Legal Studies in Indigenous Peoples Law while taking care of my elder. I mainly create chalk and clay art, among other mediums in a creative effort to revive my Maya ancestry; I'd love to showcase more of my endeavors. Let's connect!

"We must leave behind colonial concepts such as homophobia, classism, possessive acquisition of lands and capitalistic ideals whereby capital is more important than Native livelihoods."
