"Mensajes Mestizos is a cathartic expression of stories, philosophies, and teachings gathered throughout my 26 years of living. Ranging from sweat lodges, classrooms, and mentors that have fueled my knowledge and curiosity. This land carries so many stories to be told. Mensajes Mestizos takes us through a glimpse of this rich history to provoke questions, challenging self thought, and reflections of identity in ourselves and the world around us." - Diego Florez-Arroyo
