Sharing our Indigenous and Afro-Latin American roots.
Let’s shine together.

Latincouver would like to acknowledge that we are on the traditional, ancestral and unceded lands of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh.
Latincouver is planting a seed leading our journey of learning about Indigenous peoples and our identity and also creating more awareness about the richness of our cultures. As we share and celebrate our traditions and the diversity of our Indigenous and Afro-Latin American roots, we pay respect to traditional knowledge keepers and hope to build a bridge between all British Columbians so that we can live in a spirit of unity.
