BOARD OF DIRECTORS

One may not always know when a seed is planted. Yet- when a seed is one that is important, with legacy characteristics that are key for a flourishing species, Nature seems to conspire to make sure that particular seed sees the light of day.

Our multi-tribal National Board of Directors and Circle of Advisors are comprised of well-regarded Native Americans who bring a broad variety of expertise to the organization.
