Storytelling, Education, Empowerment
Autonomy, Culture, Tradition
(Storytelling, Education, Empowerment to preserve Autonomy, Culture, Tradition) is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation.
S.E.E. to A.C.T. empowers at-risk youth in rural and under served communities through storytelling and education and self-expression while preserving, developing, and promoting their unique cultural heritage. Understanding leads to increased positive educational and social outcomes for young individuals.
The programs and films we help produce are designed with a vision of giving voice and reconnecting indigenous people with their own identities, heritage and traditions – ones that may have been forgotten or repressed due to social, political, or economic forces and conflicts. S.E.E. to A.C.T. will also become a global repository that archives native and tribal traditions in the form of ‘cultural film stories’ from all over the world.
Teaching to Empower – Nigeria
Our foundation is composed of educators, film makers and business owners with interest and experience in teaching, writing, directing, and producing cultural documentaries. By preserving individual cultural identities throughout the world, we are preserving our own long forgotten human identity.
WHAT WE DO
SEE to ACT besides giving voice to indigenous peoples from all over the world, we are also committed to providing a voice for native and non-native children as well as young men and women. Education and Storytelling through film results in self-empowerment. Currently we have three projects in production in Texas and other parts of the world: Teaching to Empower, The American Voice, and our newest project in Uvalde, Texas, Healing Through Storytelling.
The American Voice – Is a repository of video stories designed to bring together indigenous families that have been separated as a result of past persecution and the on-going racial, social and political bias and tensions that continue to resonate in Texas. This project is designed to instill courage that will help individuals explore their own identity and culture, and possibly reconnect with long lost family members.

June 21, 2022 – Project HEALING THROUGH STORYTELLING – UVALDE:
(UPDATE) We are currently reaching out to the community leaders and educators of Uvalde, Texas to provide the children of Robb Elementary a way to heal from the recent trauma of a mass shooting. We are providing them with a platform to communicate and tell their stories with creative and visual expression through the art of film-making.
