"Water is the lifeblood of the land and of the Indigenous peoples and cultures that rely upon it." ~ Ardith (Walpetko We'dalx) Walkem
Our water programs are centered on the goal of improving the health of waters and watersheds, and empowering communities to address challenges and lead the way for healthy waters. We assist Indigenous communities in addressing water- and watershed-related issues, as they are defined by the community.
