“Our lives, our culture and our continued existence as a people are completely tied to the land occupied by our ancestors since time immemorial. Our land is a sacred trust. It is the living body of our spirituality. Our knowledge and our customs are understood and practiced through this relationship that protects and ensures our survival. It is our mother nourishing us in all ways: physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally.”
