SanTana’s Fairy Tales is an oral history, storytelling project initiated by author Sarah Rafael García, which integrates community-based narratives to create contemporary fairytales and fables that represent the history and stories of Mexican/Mexican-American residents of Santa Ana.

The Carousel’s Lullaby
SanTana’s urban history intertwined with a traditional Mexican-folk lullaby and a haunting ghost carousel.

Zoraida & Marisol
The godmother of life or death, Zoraida grants transgente a vital wish at their last breath.

Just A House
Josie, a young girl caught between two worlds, the haunting past and displaced futures.

Hector & Graciela (an homage to the Brothers Grimm’s Hansel & Gretel)
Hunger, uncertainty, border crossings—a precarious family-life in our little city.

When The Mural Speaks…
One man’s perspective, a fable from the faces on the wall.

The Wishing Well
A central landmark becomes a magical promenade of forgotten wishes and parallel worlds.
