Our core goals this year are to:
l) Keep fossil fuels in the sacred ground, and protect our water through opposing the coal expansions, nuclear reboot, fracking expansions and pipeline expansions in our territories
2) Break the isolation of our front line struggles to protect Mother Earth.
3) Train youth in durable indigenous economics and create pilot projects in collaboration with tribal grassroots organizers.
4) Support renewable energy solutions through increased grant funding and intellectual resource development.
As one of only two Native –led organizations doing this kind of national and international
organizing for environmental justice, we are in need of your support.

Honor the Earth is a Native-led organization, established by Winona LaDuke and Indigo Girls Amy Ray and Emily Saliers, in 1993 to address the two primary needs of the Native environmental movement: the need to break the geographic and political isolation of Native communities and the need to increase financial resources for organizing and change.
As a unique national Native initiative, Honor the Earth works to a) raise public awareness and b) raise and direct funds to grassroots Native environmental groups. We are the only Native organization that provides both financial support and organizing support to Native environmental initiatives. This model is based on strategic analysis of what is needed to forge change in Indian country, and it is based deep in our communities, histories, and long term struggles to protect the earth.
We believe a sustainable world is predicated on transforming economic, social, and political relationships that have been based on systems of conquest toward systems based on just relationships with each other and with the natural world. As our mission states, we are committed to restoring a paradigm that recognizes our collective humanity and our joint dependence on the Earth.
Honor the Earth is under the fiscal sponsorship of the White Earth Land Recovery Project, a 501(c)(3) public charity.
