Nimiipuu Protecting the Environment

 Who We Are and What We Believe...

We exist to carry on time-honored sustainable environmental practices in the tradition of the Nimiipuu by facilitating and organizing tribal youth and adults in activities for the protection, enhancement, and promotion of mother earth and the Nimiipuu culture.

Our vision is that the Nimiipuu and community members live, work, play, and pray, in an environment which sustains such activities and leaves a light foot-print for the protection of the environment and future generations.

Our Work:

To protect our Treaty areas and

To educate the tribal members and youth on current environmental issues.

To develop leaders in the environmental area for the next generation.

To promote activism within our tribes and To empower tribal members on effecting change.

Totem

Hey All,

Our next big venture is July 15, Chief Timothy Park Highway 12. We go to support The House of Tears Carvers of the Lummi Nation who are transporting a 24-foot totem pole on the Red Road to DC. Their journey is to build support for the sovereign right of tribal nations to shape local and federal solutions, and protect sacred places and the natural world for generations to come.

All are Welcome

The Dams aren't breached yet, we still need folks contacting their elected officials.
