SOTS - Hopi Tutskwa Permaculture Institute Development Coord
 
 
 
Hopi Tutskwa Permaculture Institute is a 501(c)3 U.S. non-profit fueled by passionate people. We are a community-based organization in the Village of Kykotsmovi which is located in Northern Arizona, USA on the Hopi Reservation, initiating hands on learning projects that support Hopi youth and community to develop skills and practical experience needed to promote a more ecological and healthy Hopi community. In the Hopi language Hopi Tutskwa refers to the life ways and knowledge of the land and soil. The origins of Hopi Tutskwa Permaculture stem from a deep commitment to maintain our distinct identity and lifeways as Hopi people in order to pass knowledge to the future generations and rebuild sustainable and healthy communities. Our vision is to strengthen community through the continued intergenerational practices of traditional Hopi farming and gardening, rainwater harvesting and spring restoration, natural building, and orchard keeping while applying applicable Permaculture principles, methods, and techniques. We envision a world in where: Communities practice cooperation in all aspects of life, continuing the traditional Hopi values of Sumi nangwa and Nami nagwa which means to help others selflessly for the good of everyone. Communities learn to value, care for, respect, protect, and manage the natural environment while ensuring adequate resources for the future generations. Communities will learn innovative ways towards creating sustainable communities locally and regionally.Communities have clean water, good nutritious food, and thriving ecosystems and watersheds.
