This funding supports a reparations-based, Native American-led land ownership effort in order to continue to live and operate a scalable, replicable, community of color-led climate solution. AmbitioUS is providing a one-year unrestricted grant to support Ekvn-Yefolecv [ee-gun yee-full-lee-juh], an ecovillage of the Makoke people, and their effort to embody a collective commitment to cultural and environmental sustainability by way of preserving their native language, traditions, and worldview through land ownership.
