Jasmarie Hernández-Cañuelas


Ultimately, Jasmarie Hernández-Cañuelas is a lover of stories and the people who tell them. She is an oral historian, community archivist, and visual storyteller in the making. Jasmarie believes community archives give people the autonomy to reclaim their own experiences and combat erasure, making it one of the many tools for liberation. Currently she works for the Texas After Violence Project, an abolitionist archive that documents Texans’ experiences with state violence. She also lives in her motherland of Puerto Rico with the goal of documenting how people on the island and in the diaspora are organizing themselves to resist colonialism, explore their identity, and create their own Puerto Rico. Most of Jasmarie’s free time performing musical numbers at home, laughing at a comedy show, or choosing her next sitcom to binge.
