Our team identifies culturally significant sites, artifacts, plants, animals, and more, to protect them for future generations. We advocate on behalf of our community to make sure our land, water, and resources are taken care of in a way that is culturally aligned with Indigenous values.

As the original stewards of our territory, we carry unique insight into the history, culture, and ecological needs of this place. This knowledge is essential for creating a safe and positive future for our children and grandchildren. We help Native and non Native agencies, organizations,

and land owners understand the significance of the place they live, and learn how to take better care of our Maidu cultural resources.
