Summary

This project provides 300 families and/or schools with didactic materials in three languages to learn or reassure the cultural elements of Kickapoo heritage.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Support the recovery and diffusion of the Kickapoo heritage, a nor-central algokian group of southern Canada and northern U.S. who migrated south over the centuries. For historical reasons, some of them arrived to Bacerac,Sonora, Mexico a hundred years ago. The Sonoran Kickapoo people try to recover those cultural elements that the time and the distance to the mother land are vanishing away. Didactic materials will help them. “We have to remember always” said their cheif, Ramon Barbachan.

How will this project solve this problem?

Now we’re sponsoring an artistic stimulation workshop for Kickapoo children. Their drawings will be use for design a lottery and a memory game that will reflect important elements of their culture, people and things of nature and common life.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project is going to provide 300 families or schools with didactic materials in three languages that will help them to learn or reassure the cultural elements of Kickapoo heritage, close to extinction in Sonora, Mexico.
