Protecting the Sacred Program
Protecting the Sacred invests in grassroots projects and programs around the world that support Indigenous wisdom-keepers, knowledge-holders, and their communities in strengthening and revitalizing their cultural practices, language, ceremony, sacred teachings, and lifeways. By creating these reciprocal relationships, we have the opportunity to experience a deeper understanding of what Indigenous people have known for thousands of years; Mother Earth is alive and we are a part of her,( this intrinsic connection allows for a holistic approach to living and being). In renewing our relationship with the living world, we deepen our understanding of the urgent responsibility to be respectful caretakers for future generations.
To learn more about who we are and about our giving program, please listen to a few words from our Director of Community Partnerships, Paloma Abregú Arroyo.
