Judith Hoch holds an M.A and Ph.D. in anthropology from McGill University. Her research was with indigenous Quebec Cree people, Yoruba people in Nigeria and their descendants, and the Lucumi in Miami and Cuba. She taught at two Florida universities in the USA before becoming a full-time artist.
Judith’s book Prophecy on the River makes use of the mediumship of Ernesto Pichardo. She was a finalist for the Ashton Wiley Literary Prize in 2016. She is now writing a book, Stories from the Soothsayer, based on that manuscript and her work with Ernesto. You can see her work and connect with her at her website.
