Yahuaca Knowledge Distribution LLC is a friendly, decolonial, rez-based mom & pop conglomerate.
We exist to positively change the Navajo economic & political landscape; to grow & strengthen indigenous nations; and to serve under-served indigenous communities by providing solar tech, literature, art, music & support services for entrepreneurs.
It began with a bright idea, a spark between two creative souls, and an innate drive to do something meaningful. We were on a dark, desolate road in New Mexico driving toward our future. The goal was simple: to regain our voice as indigenous people, reset the agenda, and put Native people in the driver’s seat of our own existence. They say ‘colonization is experiencing change on other people’s terms’. Our terms involve thriving. In conversations all across Indian Country, we had been hearing the same message: we need to move beyond surviving and begin thriving!
Our audacity to survive an Indigenous holocaust remains our biggest motivator to shift the landscape and change our world for the better. In small ways, we proved that art speaks volumes, unity is unbridled, and the spirit of indigenous people is strong! In large ways, we put power behind vehicles that are propelling indigenous talent, innovation and ingenuity forward.
We aim to build on the work of previous attempts to bring our Indigenous voices to the forefront of policy making and economic development. Utilizing collaboration, creativity and innovative thinking, we aim to re-educate and rebuild our communities. By partnering with existing organizations, and supporting their efforts to provide groundbreaking programming and knowledge dissemination, we will become the drivers in a movement of knowledge creation and documentation.
