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.
We appreciate everyone who stepped up and supported us through the challenging times of the Covid pandemic. We are all looking forward to resuming the important activities and events that reflect our mission and the community we serve.
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.
EDUCATE & ENGAGE
Nimiipuu organizes and/or hosts events to educate and engage the public. We work with elders and the young to facilitate intergenerational awareness and responsibility to protect what is sacred to us. We attract and develop environmental leaders for the coming generations.
NEWS and EVENTS
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.
