The Cultural Conservancy

The Cultural Conservancy, a Native-led organization founded in 1985 in San Francisco, works with indigenous communities throughout the Americas and the Pacific to protect and restore Indigenous cultures, empowering them in the direct application of traditional knowledge and practices on their ancestral lands. Among their various programs is “Native Foodways”, a program in which they steward land, grow traditional foods, and gather people together across generations in order to mend the circles within Native communities that have been disrupted by cultural, environmental, and economic destruction.

Shelterwood Collective

Shelterwood is a 900-acre Indigenous, Black, and Queer-led community forest and collective of land protectors and cultural changemakers. Shelterwood is based on unceded Southern Pomo and Kashia territory, above what is now called the Russian River in Northern California. Through land stewardship, active forest restoration and wildfire risk reduction, community and cultural organizing, and the development of a community retreat center, the retreat center, the Shelterwood Collective heals interconnected ecosystems.
