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.
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.
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.
