A Cultural Relevance & Proficiency Initiative

NepanTiahui is derived from two Nahuatl concepts:
Nepantla: In betweenness. A space where multiple spaces can coexist. A borderless space.
Tiahui: Let’s go. We can do it. Move forward (adelante)

NepanTiahui Strives to:

Collaborate with schools, museums, the healthcare system, businesses, community organizations, nonprofits, & government agencies to improve outcomes through culturally relevant content and culturally proficient practices within those spaces.
