Anahuacalmecac is honored to formalize a collaborative partnership with the indigenous government of Copalillo, Guerrero, Mexico in Nahuatl education in public indigenous schools as an extension of our participation in the California Department of Education (CDE) Exchange Visitor Program for over a decade.
Yesterday, a delegation of parents, students, educators and board members of Anahuacalmecac addressed the LAUSD Board of Education seeking the renewal of the charter of their beloved school. Anahuacalmecac International University Preparatory of North America is dedicated to student academic excellence, Native wisdom, and appreciation of the cultural and intellectual heritage of Indigenous Peoples and the promotion of positive social awareness. The charter of Anahucalmecac was unanimously authorized by the California State Board of Education in 2014 and must be renewed by June 30, 2019.
Anahuacalmecac is currently enrolling students for the upcoming academic school year 2018-2019. For information, click headline!

Breaking the Fast: Liberation through Education, Militancy and mobilization by the Mexican community in defense of Chicana & Chicano Studies at UCLA in 1993
UCLA alumni Marcos Aguilar and Minnie Ferguson who participated in a hunger strike in 1993 said at an event Tuesday they faced racial and cultural barriers as indigenous students.
The Eagle and the Condor Liberation Front, a student-led organization that promotes the unity of indigenous peoples, hosted an event to honor the 14-day sit-in and hunger strike in 1993 that led to the creation of the Chicana/o studies department. Indigenous peoples are those who first inhabited a specific area, despite any groups that have since settled in, occupied or colonized the region.
The event featured panelists who said they were frustrated that the university administration did not approve student proposals for the creation of a Chicano/a studies department in 1990.
In the spring of my sophomore year at UCLA, the administration threatened to close the Chicana/o Research Library. Chicana/o students planned an act of civil disobedience—a take-over and sit-in at the campus Faculty Center. I was eager to join, but was scheduled to work that morning. I asked my boss for permission to miss work to attend the rally. She looked me square in the eye and said yes, on two conditions: Don’t get your picture taken. And don’t get arrested.
