 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 1855 Treaty and usual and accustomed areas and

To educate the tribal members and youth on current cultural and 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.
