Call them Brujas (Spanish for witches), an all Latina skate crew right here in our borough. But they’re not just women skating in a male-dominated sport but are also socially aware challenging and questioning the world we live in.

For the Brujas girls, their crew is about more than skating: it’s about friendship, and the radical potential of sisterhood to foster real support systems, outside the mainstream social norms. They see the preventative and healing power of friendship as a source of collective empowerment, especially in the context of Western medicine and philosophy, where it’s discouraged to tap into extra-spiritual realms.
