Home Groups We Support Capoeira Luanda

Capoeira Luanda

In 2007, Capoeira Luanda was founded by Mestre Jelon, Mestre Guerreiro and Mestre Apache with the goal of teaching and promoting capoeira and Afro-Brazilian cultures. At the same time, the organization strives to use the principals of capoeira as a means to foster positive psycho-social development and critical consciousness within the community. Capoeira can therefore become a way to celebrate and learn from Brazilian culture’s rich meanings and possibilities.

A 2022 grant from Cultures of Resistance Network supported their programs in Natividade, Tocantins & Maranguape, Ceara.
