Cecilia Artates

Cecilia Artates spends her time by spreading awareness of her country’s indigenous culture writing poems and singing songs with lyrics sprinkled with words she learned from her many travels among different indigenous groups she visited. When not juggling tasks as a performance artist and writer, she is ‘Inay’ or ‘mother’ to the youth of different non-government organizations—volunteering, organising and conceptualising projects in education, arts, culture and sports. She is also a consultant in a local public library and a founding member of IHIP (Initiatives and Hearts for Indigenous People).
