Curandero author to speak at MOSTH

EDINBURG – On Sunday, April 15, the Museum of South Texas History hosts author and curandero (healer), Alberto Salinas Jr., as he presents “Conversations with a Curandero Border Healer” starting at 2 p.m. The program is included in the fee for regular museum admission. MOSTH is located at 200 N. Closner Blvd. in downtown Edinburg.

His traditional healing practices stem from his childhood, culture, and connection to the legendary Mexican folk healer El Niño Fidencio. Growing up in the small South Texas town of Raymondville, during the 1950s, Salinas was exposed to a region in the midst of change. However, Salinas, like many, was raised in a spiritually traditional family who sought the advice and healing powers of curanderos.
