Caressa Nguyen and Alexandra Wilderness, Sacred hands, Native lands

Sacred Lands, Native Hands creates a bridge between the holders of indigenous knowledge and the current landholders to return the wisdom of stewardship to its proper place: the forests, grasslands, and living water bodies of our planet.

Sacred Lands, Native Hands connects holders of indigenous knowledge directly to current landholders to deconstruct the fences and walls of colonization. We cultivate relationships with landholders and create agreements that allow for easements to culturally significant materials. The cultural erasure of colonization has forced many indigenous practices into hibernation, but with access to land and resources they can be reawakened.
