We provide a variety of programs tailored to the needs of participants and organizational goals, focusing on positive outcomes of all learners.
"Working with everyone at Noxtin Nomecayotzin has been truly powerful... Each time they come to do a workshop or a healing session, we receive very many comments from participants on how much they have learned and felt nourished by their work with our community. This is why we keep inviting them, and feel most fortunate that they gift us with their knowledge, skills, wisdom, and teachings. On top of this, they work with us to thoughtfully and carefully plan out all aspects of each event they've led or organized, and they truly listen to what our students and community members are seeking to feel, understand, experience. Thank you SO MUCH for your arduous, beautiful and impactful work!" -Assistant Professor of Education, Alicia Rusoja, Ph.D.
"Thank you for the healing circle. It reminded me that love, family/friends and spirituality is was makes life meaningful." -participant

Birth Tochtli - Community Birthwork Projects
Because Indigenized learning starts with birth!
Hi, Thanks for stopping in to learn about me!
I go by Jacqueline or Jackie (her/hers/ella) and I'm the mother of three from 12-21 yrs. old. Parenting is the longest ceremony anyone will ever embark on and it's also my favorite. I've been supporting parents and families, particularly in the postpartum phase, for over 17 years. I serve people of the global majority (BIPOC) through their pregnancy, birth, postpartum journeys as well as the parenting continuum. I believe we all hold the ancestral and physiological wisdom needed to birth and parent in ways that work for ourselves and our family. I also believe our work and prayers are needed to care for and guide our next generations. Addressing birth and early parenting is a so important to Noxtin Nomecayotzin's overarching focus on Indigenizing learning for future generations. I am a Roots of Labor Doula and serve on the skillshare branch and MediCal Doula Coaching Team.
Jackie's birthwork is "reliable, trustworthy and nurturing." -L. Casco

Through the Birth Tochtli Project, Noxtin Nomecayotzin Education offers person-centered support for people and families during preconception, pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum and the parenting continuum.
