We support the creation of thriving ecologically, culturally and economically sustainable Native Nations.  The renewal of traditional relationships of balance, honor and reciprocity with our homelands, ecologies, communities, and families form the foundation of resilient sustainable Nations, and our work is designed to support this renewal!
We do this work through offering professional training, development services, and programs in renewable energy systems, green and natural building, ecological wastewater treatment, food sovereignty, Indigenous community master planning, and localized bioregional economic development.  
We also offer ongoing workshops, community dialogue, and program development services on:
  • Medicinal plants and healing
  • Decolonial Parenting
  • Indigenous Schooling and Education
  • Sexual health, Education, and Childbirth
And offer a new program, Indigenous Healing Justice, to address gendered violence in our community and provide workshops, dialogue, avenues for community resilience, accountability, and survivor-led healing that is rooted in transformative justice and traditional Indigenous teachings.

1 thought on “About Us

  1. Greetings,
    I work with the University of Arizona Native American Student Affairs and am collaborating with the UA Alternative Study Abroad program office to determine if there are any opportunities for UA students to assist with during Spring Break (March 2-9, 2019). The focus of the UA Alternative Study Abroad this year is on Indigenous Rights, there will approximately be 14 participants who will be available for integration into the community through service learning.

    If there are projects that need assistance in forms of participants, please let me know at your earliest convenience.

    Best,
    Rachelle Simpson (Pueblo of Acoma), Interim Director
