The Traditional Center for Indigenous Knowledge and Healing revitalizes and preserves Traditional Indigenous culture to create sustainable communities. Our priority is to provide knowledge and resources supporting sustainable culturally relevant living, with seed sovereignty being our focus. Currently, the ideation of giving land back to Indigenous people is no longer, but many are working towards ways to create long term land access for those who have had land stolen from them. In Indigenous culture, land is a highly respected means of sustenance, at the minimum.

As a Regional Navigator we intend to create easily and widely accessible resources for Indigenous community members who would like to access land as well as offer resources and workshops to assist people when they have access to land. We also plan to educate ourselves on the different legal processes of land transfer, including but not limited to leases, ownership, conservation easements, and cultural conservation easements so that we are able to assist people through these processes ourselves.
