TURTLE ISLAND UNITED
Turtle Island United commenced in 2020. Initially known as "Native COVID-19 Response," the Project focused on providing critical aid in response to acute COVID-19 issues that have hit Native American communities hard as a result of Indian Country's economic exclusion and resultant chronic health issues. In 2021, the Project has expanded to addressing broader issues of community wellness, health, food sovereignty and security. Currently, Turtle Island United is focused on helping communities to create clean water solutions and food growing initiatives for the future, while integrating nutritious foods, traditional plant medicines, and preventative measures into everyday life.
Turtle Island United is a collaborative effort in partnership with Indigenous Peoples and Partners for Native Nations of Turtle Island.

“ My heart is overflowing with love and awe and inspiration over how this effort has grown from the seed of an idea. A need that had to be met spoke to hearts that listened and responded, and they gathered more hearts, and more people responded to the call to action in whatever way their skill and life allowed. And the flow of love to communities in need grew exponentially and hasn’t stopped. This is regenerating hearts and communities. This is one of many ways people are changing the world in beautiful ways today.”
