Introducing our Founding Partners Initiative
Our Mission: Elderberry Wisdom Farm provides opportunities for Native Americans, communities of color and public audiences to raise awareness of the rich cultural heritage and traditional ecological knowledge of America’s First Peoples. We work with diverse collaborative partners to provide educational and workforce opportunities so Native people can fulfill meaningful career pathway plans, strengthen health and wellness, and achieve prosperity. Committed to diversity, equity and inclusion for all, we strive to strengthen understanding, appreciation and respect for the wisdom and knowledge of Native American elders, cultural leaders and indigenous scientists.
Our Vision: We envision the material and spiritual transformation of our Native community and are committed to unity and harmony inside our organization and in our community. Recognizing the fragile social fabric that our people continue to experience after two centuries of historical trauma and threats to environmental, social and political sustainability, we strive to reflect Native cultural values to our community, including respect for all peoples and the world of nature, diplomacy and social and emotional resiliency.
