COUNCIL OF
KNOWLEDGE KEEPERS

Red Road Journey operates at the grassroots level.  The tribal communities we serve play a direct role in how we govern, and practically speaking, whether we operate.

This is demonstrated through the composition of our Board of Directors, which unlike other nonprofit or corporate organizations, reflects cultural and spiritual leaders directly from the communities we serve.

We refer to them as our “Council of Knowledge Keepers”, each being a member from a tribal nation indigenous to the regions we operate. They ensure we remain grounded in the execution of our organizational vision.

OUR PARTNERS

We believe in nourishing meaningful relationships with tribal and community stakeholders on a local, national and global level.

This includes nonprofit foundations, private organizations, educational institutions and regular people who believe in reawakening the memory of our unique role in this world: to take care of ourselves, each other and the planet. 

If you're interested in getting involved, think you'd make an ideal partner, or would like to support in another way, feel free to get in touch
