Original Caretakers

Intro

Indigenous traditions hold important knowledge for the challenge posed by our ecological crisis.

Our Original Caretakers Program supports the work of faith-keepers in Indigenous communities and seeks their guidance for our own educational programs and materials. It is an important part of the CEE’s work to insure that Native voices are heard in interfaith dialogue, especially around matters of ecology.
