“Since the beginning of our own time, the land has defined our language, culture, and way of life. There was a time in our recent history that we have been steered away from staying connected to the land. That is why, for me, being on the Land makes me whole. The Collaborative gives an opportunity for people to come together and share experiences of on the land activities.”

"We need to work together to provide solutions to promote healthy choices and wellness in our communities. The Collaborative is important because it is a way to support on the land programming for the well being of all peoples of the North. It is also a way to educate Northerners on the values we hold for our environment. The Collaborative supports the transmission of knowledge from Elders to our youth about our land, waters, history, and culture to ensure they are prepared for their roles as future stewards."
