During the last 3 years, Waterock L3C, a limited profit company, introduced with the encouragement of the Elders, traditional land and water restoration training to several groups of Hopi and Navajo Youth.
This led to its selection as a winner of “100 Projects for the Climate” by the French Government. A follow up workshop in Morocco, during COP22, benefited a group of Berber and international experts on the Environment.
Several Training Workshops have also been held in Northern Mexico with The Cuenca Los Ojos Foundation.
The successful completion of several Workshops by Hopi and Navajo Youth showed positive results, not only in restoration of their landscapes, but increasing self-esteem and re-introducing traditional ecological knowledge. To increase the scale and the capacity of the workshops has inspired the birth of the Land Healers Foundation.
