Our Environment

We are gloriously, inescapably earthbound and yet we disregard our home at our own peril.

Our world is calling out, louder than ever, to wake up, listen deeply, and come into the right relationship with our land to save what we have left and plant the seeds for a thriving future.

The truth is that climate action and sustainable stewardship of our natural resources are essential for our survival here on Earth.

We can no longer turn our heads and ignore what we don’t want to see. It’s time to change.

How will we honour and care for our Mother?

Indigenous Environmental Network, Indigenous Principles of Just Transition

Since occupation and colonization of the Indigenous lands and territories of North America (Turtle Island), American Indian and Alaska Natives in the United States and First Nations and Aboriginal Peoples in Canada have been fighting for our now internationally recognized inherent rights to our lands, our rights for self-determination and sovereignty. The moment is now to stand strong and in solidarity in defense of our treaty territories, land, water, air and protection of the Circle of All Life.;

Soul Fire Farm

Afro-Indigenous centered community farm committed to uprooting racism and seeding sovereignty in the food system. We raise and distribute life-giving food as a means to end food apartheid. With deep reverence for the land and wisdom of our ancestors, we work to reclaim our collective right to belong to the earth and to have agency in the food system. We bring diverse communities together on this healing land to share skills on sustainable agriculture, natural building, spiritual activism, health, and environmental justice.
