Healthy Masculinities

In the Tewa language, Kwee-wa seng-wa vi tuu signifies the ancestral knowingness found in female and male energy, and reminds us that these energies are always woven together.

Tewa Women United centers the voices of Indigenous women, and at the same time we honor and welcome the essential role of men in our struggles, and support the re-membering of healthy masculinities.

The purpose of the Healthy Masculinities Project is to raise awareness of the importance of involving men and boys to prevent violence against women and girls. The project implements a culturally adapted and enhanced version of the A Call to Men’s Live Respect curriculum that is braided with the A’Gin Healthy Sexuality and Body Sovereignty curriculum. We have also partnered with community collaborators to create the New Mexico Healthy Masculinities Toolkit.
