Finisia Medrano, aka “Tranny Granny”

Finisia Medrano, aka "Tranny Granny"Finisia Medrano, aka “Tranny Granny”, is a Shoshone elder who still practices The Hoop, an ancient migratory way-of-life in which wild food sources are seeded, cultivated and harvested in different regions, following the seasons, with no permanent year-round home. We have had the pleasure of making Granny’s acquaintance, and want to point people toward her Rewilding efforts, which are arguably the most sustainable way of living on the North American continent long-term.
