The focus is to educate Native Youth on culturally appropriate long-term solutions to combat a quickly depleting environment.

“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also DREAM….not only plan, but also BELIEVE.” – Anatole France
“Out of the Indian approach to existence there came a great freedom, an intense and absorbing love for nature…
…enriching faith in a Supreme Power; and principles of truth, honesty, generosity, equity, and brotherhood as a single guide to mundane relations.”
-Luther Standing Bear, ca 1886-1939
