Sustainability Working Group


The mission of this committee is for tribal community to become aware of the Tribe’s world view, and traditional tools that work toward restoring Earth balance. And, where appropriate, educate other organizations and communities about the Tribe’s world view and appropriate traditional knowledge, which will assist in restoring a safe and stable climate. Additionally we work to ensure that all tribally sponsored community functions continue to honor our relationship and responsibility to our Mother Earth.
