About Us

Chichihualli Lactation and Family Wellness is an Indigenous centered breast/chestfeeding nonprofit organization in Panorama City that was birthed out of the community’s need for culturally competent and trauma informed breast/chestfeeding education and support services. We are an Indigenous led organization committed to aligning our breast/chestfeeding advocacy, work and activism with our core values, and cosmological world views as Indigenous people of Cemanahuac and guardians of the earth.  Chichihualli is committed to providing Indigenous, Latinx, and local families access to safe space and Anahuac culturally centered and trauma informed breast/chestfeeding education and support services that foster family wellness and community building. We believe that human milk is a sacred first food and that breast/chestfeeding is an important part of restoring our Indigenous traditions, and improving community, public, and planetary health. We continue to advocate for access to breast/chestfeeding support and green safe spaces in our community. Chichihualli is committed to help protect and restore breast/chestfeeding as an ancestral tradition, food sovereignty,  and a continuation of social, and environmental justice. Chichihualli is grounded in social and environmental justice, and actively raises awareness on the racial disparities within healthcare settings, high prevalence of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE's), access to community green safe spaces, maternal and infant mental health, and increasing the rates of breast/chestfeeding among our local under-resourced communities throughout Tongva and Tataviam lands other known as the city of Los Angeles.
