Cultural Competency Video Project

Tell your story! The TCCAC Culture Committee is asking all  Tribes to join together to support equity in child care for Tribal communities through your voice and your story! The Culture Committee is working on creating a series of videos highlighting California Tribal culture and traditions. These videos will be used to raise the voices of CA Tribal communities, create understanding with communities outside of our own and promote cultural competencies. In order to accomplish these goals it is imperative that we all work together and contribute to this amazing project. 


This Cultural Committee endeavor will continue the vision of Project HOPE, harnessing opportunity for positive equitable early childhood development. The Culture Committee is seeking your story to be featured as part of the broader picture of Tribes throughout California. We want to showcase as many Tribal child care cultures as we can.  Please watch the following video for more information on this project and how you can be a part of it!
