Chaldeans are among the many ethnic groups that have been immigrating to the United States since the early 1900s. Chaldeans are Eastern Rite Catholics, Aramaic speaking, and originating primarily in Iraq. Chaldeans have come to America for the same reasons as other immigrant groups – in search of better economic opportunities, as well as for religious and political freedoms. In the beginning of the new millennium, there are over 150,000 Chaldeans in the metropolitan Detroit area, creating the largest Chaldean community in the U.S. The second largest community is in the greater San Diego area. It is estimated that there are 1.2 to 1.5 million Chaldeans throughout the world.

Our Mission:

The Chaldean Cultural Center celebrates and explores the extraordinary history, arts, traditions, and contributions of the Chaldean people from ancient times to the present, serving as a repository for our collected history and stories. By forging relationships with other educational and cultural institutions, the CCC not only nurtures pride within the Chaldean community, but also promotes greater understanding among communities as part of cultural diversity.
