About Authentic Creations Artistic Apothecary

My Story

Hujambo! Bright rising, Beautiful Beings. My first name is kuwa jasiri. My pronouns are the one, beauty, and ellx in Spanish. I am a Seed + Medicine + Birth Keeper. I am a genderqueer of Ghanaian, Cuban, Spanish, Zulu, Creole descendant.

I began intentionally connecting with the Natural world after college. I wanted ways to meet my own needs instead of seeking out others. I started Authentic Creations to offer my land based skills to those in need around me. Originallysparked from my soidarity work with the Indigenous Diné Nationof Central Turtle Island.

Another world is possible!

Through the cultivation and distribution of cultural Seeds, Authentic Creations affirm the societial greatness of genderqueer People Of Heritage. We work to reestablish sovereign governance, advocate for healhty food, land access, reparations, accessibility, abolition and accountability. We prioritize collective care, spiritual wellness and ancestral wisdom.

Since 2011, with our BY US, FOR US model, we center intersectionality, blackness, disabilities and those incarcerated.

Where does your money go?
Generous community contributions provide vital resources for our dynamic decolonial programming. As an Afro + community led group we bolster basic dignities, access to leadership roles and truth telling. We sustain genuine relationships built upon trust, collaboration & witnessing the fullness of each member. We understood rest and creative expression to be essential parts of living. Our community spaces exist for the purpose of replenishing and rejuvenating our bodies.

All community donations are matched dollar for dollar as well as are requirements to continue receiving large foundation grants. All donations are Tax Deductible through our Fiscal Sponsorship with Movimento --- 501(c)(3) number: 73-168337

Patrons Do + Pay-What-You-Can!
This is a space for all members of our community + those who love us. To create an equitable society, those of us who have benefited from privilege must give away their money, labour, and other resources to marginalized folks. While learning what it means to be part of a community, engage in cultural accountability, divesting from capitalistic and -ism based systems.

By participating in these ways you are celebrating us and allowing us to receive equitable pay for our community contributions. Thank you!
