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.

Nimiipuu Protecting the Environment is a voice for the land, water and air. We gather to support positive environmental actions and to protest threats to our treaty right. We increases public awareness and encourage collective action.
Knowing that there is strength both in numbers and a common vision, Nimiipuu connects with other groups in the region who are dedicated to protecting the environment.
