This organization has been requested by the elders to organize a network of tribal groups and indigenous organizations and sponsor a forum to discuss the preservation of ancestral seeds and the revival of traditional organic farming techniques.Presently, in the United States alone the Native land base is approximately 54 million acres. By including the Native holdings in Canada, Mexico, Central and South America this would bring the amount of land which Native people control nearly one billion acres.Regional demonstration sites will be selected to implement the ideas brought forward by the elders. The use of this land in a conscious and co-operative way could formant a revival of Native agricultural ideals and change patterns of destructive farming patterns.Sovereignty and preservation of traditional Native culture is interwoven with a sacred relationship with the mother earth. The Organization will conduct regional meetings to develop an active network while researching resources, national and international policy, and partner organizations.A foundation of this initiative will be the research and development of a seed preservation project.
