[The Decolonizing Medicine Podcast S01E09. Original release date January 17, 2022.]
Hi, you are listening to The Decolonizing Medicine Podcast. I'm Jamee Pineda, your host, and I am a queer non binary trans person and a practitioner of Hilot and Chinese medicine. My ancestry is mostly Tagalog and some Chinoy, but I was raised here on Turtle Island. This episode is part one of a two episode story with Kalei'okalani Matsui. She will be sharing her experiences as a gestational parent, the impacts of colonization on her care, and her connection to ancestral wisdom. Content warnings for this episode include domestic violence, sexual assault, and medical trauma. There are some exciting things in the works for 2022. One of them is that I am in the process of opening an in-person practice in Baltimore. I also have another zine coming in the 5 phase series. This one will be about wood. For updates on my work, you can sign up for my mailing list at linktr.ee/JameePinedaHealingArts. As always, Patreon has been so helpful in allowing me the creativity and flexibility to do these projects and make medicine more accessible in many different ways.
Aloha nui, Jamee!
Are you ready to talk about this?
I am mākaukau.
I'm so excited. How are you doing today?
Today, you know running around all over the place and as usual, so I'm doing really good you know every other days like ups and downs. But right now I'm floating on a high just because of this opportunity to speak with you and on this beautiful podcast. I feel really honored and just very welcomed and warm. So, mahalo.

Jamee Pineda: Hi, you are listening to The Decolonizing Medicine Podcast. I'm Jamee Pineda, a queer, non binary trans person and a practitioner of Hilot and Chinese medicine. My ancestry is
mostly Tagalog and some Chinoy, but I was raised here on Turtle Island. Everyone's experience with autism is unique. So I encourage you to listen to many people's experiences, especially Black and Brown, queer and trans folks, because we are often overshadowed by white dominant narratives.
