Xingonas in the Pit
Daisy Salinas is the founder of Xingonas in the Pit, an all-ages San Antonio-based decolonial feminist punk collective aimed at creating a network of safe radical music/art spaces.

Thick Bitch is a biannual radical, body positive, femme, trans, and nonbinary-inclusive Clothes Swap for plus size, fat, curvy, gorditx, chubby, and/or thick identifying people.
“Decolonizing Art Workshop” In our first workshop led by artist Suzy González, participants discussed critical frameworks when observing art and art history as we studied examples of exploitation and appropriation towards people of color by European artists.
Texas’ first “Black and Brown Punk Fest” aimed to unite punks of color across Texas! Learn more here.
The second Xingonas in the Pit “Decolonizing the Tricentennial” encouraged San Antonio-based artists & participants to dissect what the City’s Tricentennial celebration means to us as indigenous peoples of the area, the continent, and the world.
