Inspired by popular education and indigenous movements in Latin American, The Philippines, Hawaii, and the Civil Rights movements in the United States, CECE is dedicated to building power through stronger connections to our name, home, and ancestors. 


CECE believes that our story is our medicine and that a healthy story told is a healthy story lived.  Through a Pedagogy of Soul Consciousness (Nakem) our culture circles become a space for learning about one’s gifts (skill/ability) so it can be shared to make a healthier community.
