Using autoethnographic research for this study, I intimately explore my experiences in school as a Detroit Latino male and the relationship with my family, community, and school and how they intersected and helped me achieve academic success. I excavate the indigenous roots that characterizes my family’s way of knowing and explore how that foundation laid the ground work for the values that have shaped my identity. I select a personal narrative that relies on memories, photos, school yearbooks, and news clippings to describe my journey within the southwest Detroit Latina/o community. I identify the community institutions and their influences on me that contributed to my sense of belonging and eventual academic success.
