What is Abuela Taught Me?

Welcome to the ONLY Indigenous Caribbean educational space that centers Two-Spirit and LGBTQ healing. We aim to make an educational space where Black and Brown peoples work with our histories and ancestors to heal and fortify ourselves and our communities. Abuela Taught Me hopes to share this knowledge with our communities through self-empowerment activism and cultural education workshops.
