Hopi Tutskwa Permaculture is an Indigenous-led non-profit organization based in the village of Kykotsmovi, in northern Arizona, on the Indigenous Hopi Reservation. Its mission is to create community-based solutions in order to pass knowledge to future generations and rebuild culturally sustainable and healthy communities. The group initiates learning projects that engage, train, and inspire Hopi youth and community to revitalize Hopi culture, knowledge, and traditions. It supports Hopi community members in developing leadership skills to strengthen local food systems and to implement sustainable ecological projects within the Hopi community. Hop Tutskwa aims to provide its community with the tools, training, and practical experience needed to rebuild a vibrant community based on traditional Hopi values and worldview.
Hopi Tutskwa’s Indigenous Earth Stewardship Fellowship Program focuses on strengthening opportunities for Indigenous youth, young adults, and community leaders to gain experience and training necessary to begin the process of rebuilding healthy and vibrant culturally sustainable and regenerative communities. By building the capacity of its youth, young adults, and community leaders, the group nurtures and maintains important resources in the local community and in the hands of local people.
