Quote from the Swixweytec- Our Ancestral Voice:
“After several community & Comprehensive Community Strategic Planning meetings it was decided that the best way to ensure success in our community would be to streamline our administrative management process and connect the processes closely to a new governance model, a pillared structure -a Kukuli, where the community is held up by pillars (administrative departments)”.
