(1873–1906), healer and mystic. Teresa Urrea was known by many names in the north of Mexico: the Saint of Cabora, the Mexican Joan of Arc, the Mexican Girl Saint, and Queen of the Yaquis. But most of her followers and associates knew her as “Teresita,” the name by which she is commonly known in the early twenty-first century.
