Nimiipuu Protecting the Environment

"Nimiipuu" is the Nez Perce or Nimipuutímt translation for “the people” which is one amongst many names the Nez Perce call themselves. And- protecting the environment of our traditional lands was the common commitment that brought us together. By networking with some First Nations friends near the Tar Sands, we had the opportunity to meet and receive financial support from the Seventh Generation Fund. With their seed funding, we began working on ways to educate and inform our tribal membership about the Tar Sands and other areas at risk. We began meeting, organizing activities and events on the reservation, and offering public interest group activities at area colleges/universities. Nimiipuu Protecting the Environment is committed to protect Tribal Treaty rights within our original ceded area and usual and accustomed places."
