This series is based on an interview with Francisco Chavajay, curandero de huesos, a folk healer of bones. I interviewed Francisco while studying at the San Pedro Spanish School in Guatemala. Our goal with this series is to open our minds to Curanderismo (folk medicine) and the integral role it plays in the Latino culture. There are five parts of the interview. After listening to each part, we go over what don Francisco said, reviewing the vocabulary and grammar as we practice interpreting each key line between English and Spanish.
