The mission of the Central American Historical and Ancestral Society (CAHAAS) of California is to promote an understanding of Central America's rich and dynamic history, culture, and its people's contributions within and beyond its national borders through an easily accessible digital platform where stories, art, history, and culture can be collected, preserved, and shared with all.

CAHAAS connects the past with the present by uprooting history through the curation of Central American artifacts, documents, and photographs, shining a light on more inclusive and authentic stories to ultimately inspire and empower Central Americans, and encouraging all to explore the Central American experience. 


Your support from either, donations or submissions, will fund a much needed community archive that will ultimately change perspectives and behaviors towards the Central American diaspora; you will help minimize the biased narratives, stereotypes, racism and inequality that plague our society.
