Our Mission

To make connections across cultures, generations, class, and knowledge basis.

We are a multigenerational coalition of forest lovers working together to provide space and organization for the sharing of skills, knowledge, wisdom, and the stories of the area and the folks who live here.

Our Values

We recognize that the site where we will organize is on sacred Native Anishinaabeg land, as well as many of the traditions and knowledge coming together is likely from the Natives in the area. Therefore, as a foundation for the event we embrace the wisdom of the Anishinaabeg Seven Grandmother/Grandfather teachings:

Love - Zaagidiwin

Honesty - Gwekwaadiziwin

Respect - Mnaadendimowin

Humility - Dbaadendiziwin

Bravery-Courage - Aakide'ehewin

Truth - Debwewin

Wisdom - Nbwaakaawin


Know the ways of the ones who take care of you, so that you may take care of them.”
