We Are Committed to Working in Respectful Partnership

As an organization, Nature United believes that the increased authority and capacity of Indigenous Peoples to steward their lands and waters is critical for the future of healthy ecosystems and communities. We believe there are four interconnected elements that greatly impact Indigenous authority and capacity to steward lands and waters: governance, stewardship, leadership, and local economies.
