"Yes we can - for the good of all people and the world - we must protect our waters - our most precious resource on earth -
Keep that beautiful picture in your heart, mind and soul
Keep the land, water, animals and future generations alive in your heart, mind and soul
Keep it above the rest, above the negative business -
Thank you all for keeping it above all else - see it, believe it and we will achieve it! "
(Chief Marilyn Baptiste)
Friends of the Nemaiah ValleyThis is a land of great mountains and pristine lakes, of wild rivers and remote forests, of grizzlies and black bears, wolves and wild horses, of moose, deer, fur-bearers, fresh water fish and wild salmon.
It is also a land constantly under threat from inappropriate and destructive industrial development.
As a bulwark against these threats, FONV works to support and strengthen a rich First Nations culture that has lived sustainably within this ecosystem since time before memory. This culture has many of the elements that can help direct the larger, global society toward a path of sustainability and away from a path that threatens global survival. We encourage and support these positive elements through our educational and other initiatives in partnership with the Tsilhqot’in people of Xeni.
Our work is informed by the understanding that healthy societies and economies can develop and thrive only within healthy environments.
