It is our mission to restore health and balance for all people and for our environment by utilizing traditional knowledge and wisdom, respect-filled land-based practices, ceremonies, and a deep understanding of the dynamics and peoples of our communities. For over 30 years, we have worked to revitalize and preserve our languages and traditions of our cultures of origin, engage in proactive response to climate adaptation, cultivate green pathways in our economic development, and build individual and community capacity from within, standing upon our traditional wisdom. We work to change systems that perpetuate environmental health disparities related to the impact of decades of environmental degradation by the mining industry, institutional racism and multi-generational trauma.
