In African Indigenous communities, wisdom keepers are well respected and play an instrumental role in society.
The Wisdom Keepers Circle is an initiative of ACCEC that promotes cultural awareness and connections among all people of African descent within our community. In conjunction with Wisdom Keepers, we provide the opportunity for members of our African descent community to interact with African-Indigenous elders. Participants will also have the opportunity to participate in experiential learning activities that recognize and celebrate the diversity and cultures of African Indigenous peoples.
By utilizing wisdom keepers, ACCEC’s committee of wisdom keepers teaches African Indigenous knowledge systems, which employ cultural practices and transmission of knowledge from one generation to the next.
