In 1975, Xicoindio was started as one of the premiere cultural institutions in Arizona serving Latino and Indigenous artists. 42 years later, our name has changed but our mission has remained the same...


Our Mission

The mission of Xico, Inc. is to nourish a greater appreciation of the cultural and spiritual heritages of the Latino and Indigenous peoples of the Americas throughout the Arts.


At Xico, Inc. we believe in the transformative power of art. We believe that history should be honored and preserved through contemporary practices.
