Tierra Madre Fund exists to facilitate the fulfillment of our responsibilities as caretakers of Na’ah Illahee, Mother Earth, by advancing the movement towards wellness-based, sustainable Indigenous cultures.
"Give back, in reciprocity, for what we have been given.
Reciprocity helps us resolve the moral tension of taking a life by giving something of value that sustains the ones who sustain us.
One of our responsibilities as human people is to find ways to enter into reciprocity with the more-than-human world. We can do it through gratitude, through ceremony, through land stewardship, science, art, and in everyday acts of practical reverence. "
