Indígena Consulting, LLC, is an Indigenous and Latina owned and managed specialist-trained, culturally responsive* consulting company. We provide culturally responsive consultation and have a deep understanding of cultural differences, value cultural groups, and strive to avoid privileging one group over another. We value all forms of knowledge, both traditional culture and scientific.
Culture affects how we think, communicate, interpret the world, problem solve, and make decisions. It is a central component to learning. Culturally responsive consultation is important because we gather new knowledge and skills by tapping into prior knowledge. Cultural capital is a part of that prior knowledge and because learning is a cultural act, our work requires cultural responsiveness.
Indígena Consulting, LLC is prepared to help you at any level, from impartial advice to practical assistance; helping you make the most of every opportunity.
*Cultural responsiveness is the ability to learn from and relate respectfully with people from other cultures.
At Indígena Consulting, LLC, our guiding principles are to ensure our work is relevant, relatable, realistic and responsive. Our mission is to create relationships and build on current knowledge.
