From the 2016 Emerging Leaders Program (ELP), Ciarra Greene was awarded the $10,000 SHIFTx Fellowship Fund grant for her proposal to promote the restoration and conservation of her Nez Perce environment in 2019 and 2020. “Nimiipuu’neewit: Lifeways of Our Homelands” is a collaboration between the Nez Perce Tribe and local academic institutions and agencies that will create a camp for Nimiipuu (Nez Perce) adults in order to strengthen participants’ cultural identity, connection to place, and stewardship of the land. Made possible by a $10,000 grant from Patagonia, The Fund supports projects by Emerging Leaders Program alumni that address issues of importance to their communities. Greene’s week-long program, which will take place on Nez Pierce homelands with a resident elder, will improve community health by promoting subsistence consumption and outdoor activity and introduce education and career pathways in environmental fields. Following the summer program, learning will continue with guest speakers, webinars, and service learning activities in collaboration with partners such as the US Forest Service, Idaho Fish and Game, Department Idaho Parks and Recreation Department, Northwest Indian College, and Lewis-Clark State College.
