SOTS - HTPI Summer Associates, Kykotsmovi, AZ
We seek to facilitate and train change agents and community leaders to solve persistent bio-cultural issues in their communities by creating and implementing land-based solutions that generate measurable ecological regeneration, foster greater human rights, and grow improved personal and community well-being. We serve all 14 villages on the Hopi Indian Reservation and surrounding Dine/Navajo communities. We serve the socially disadvantaged, including elders, youth, villages, schools, parents, low-income households, and the underemployed who are less likely to have access to quality food.
