Good coming of age tale set in New Mexico in the '40s.
A Latin might see it as reason to protest, so the book was banned in some venues.

For me it's a bit of my life, we had those women in my family. But with modern ways they vanished. At least to us civilized folk. ;)
The trailer

And the movie


Worth a watch.

In reviews of the movie the reviewers often refer to Ultima as a Curandera, a medicine woman.

From her words, she's a good, wise woman.

A short (seven minute) piece that shows a rural curandera treating various village children with plants and other methods including various types of limpias or cleansings. Through interviewing the curandera we learn what is the most important thing that enables healing. With english subtitles
