Checking the construction of the Kikapoo Community Center
The Kikapoo community lives in Tamichopa, a small town located at the mountains of the northern mexican state of Sonora. For many years, Sonoran Kikapoos have been living isolated, away from progress and from their mother culture. For about a year, Lutisuc has worked with them throughout many activities that have keep them not only busy and excited, but has developed on Kikapoos a new perspective for a better future.
Nowadays, Lutisuc is being helped to sponsor the construction of Tamichopa’s Kikapoo Community Center. This Center is meant to be a place for Kikapoos to improve their life quality, promote and preserve their cultural heritage, and to reinforce community bounds, throughout workshops, meetings and other activities for their benefit. In order to do so, Lutisuc will fully equipped the Center and pass it to the Kikapoos for today and tomorrows´ generations.
Kikapoo men are actively participating in the construction of the Community Center, and with the support and encourage from their families, they hope to have it in full function by June. Meanwhile, the Kikapoo Lottery and Memory Game, a didactic material that will be print with the generous donations of our Global Giving friends is ready and waiting for the Center to be presented.
Lutisuc kindly asks for your help to accomplish the goals of this project. Helping Lutisuc will allow Kikapoo children to play and learn about their cultural heritage in space of their own, the Community Center. We will appreciate all your donations. Thank you!
