If you’d like to support an Indigenous artist, check out my webcomic Ringaround (available on Tapas and Smackjeeves, along with my Patreon!)! It features an entirely sapphic and poc main cast, with two Indigenous characters! (Pictured at right)

Juchitán de Zaragoza, Mexico - Dorian Ulises López Macias

Juchitán de Zaragoza (Spanish pronunciation: [xutʃiˈtan de saɾaˈɣosa]; Spanish name; Isthmus Zapotec: Xabizende [ʒàbìˈzěndè]) is an indigenous town in the southeast of the Mexican state of Oaxaca. It is part of the Juchitán District in the west of the Istmo de Tehuantepec region. With a 2005 census population of 74,714 inhabitants, it is the fourth-largest city in the state (just barely behind Salina Cruz). The majority of the indigenous inhabitants are Zapotecs and Huaves.
