Cultural Advocacy

The health of our communities rests on the health of our lands 

and it must be brought to light that marginalized communities disproportionately occupy our most degraded landscapes. DAR collaborates with Indigenous-lead organizations and BIPOC communities to uplift and recreate a land-based culture grounded in Indigenous wisdom.

Harvest of All First Nations is an Indigenous-led organization that serves primarily BIPOC and underserved communities through education, ancestral healing practices, and reclamation of Indigenous Knowledge and lifeways. Their goal is to achieve reciprocal relationships between people and all living relatives of Turtle Island and Condor Nations, through a strong lens of eco-feminism and rematriation.

In 2022, DAR is partnering with HAFN to pilot an Indigenous Foods Garden and Fall Festival at Yellow Barn Farm.

A Personal Share From Our Cultural Liason

Biography pic  2 Aztec red blue.jpeg

Andrea Nawage

My name is Andrea Yoloteotl Chalchihuitl, I have the honor to carry fire from my Aztec Culture, for more than two decades and an Aztec Dancer. Along the way, I have been able to conduct and guide women’s circles and ceremonies as well as participated at the Moon Dance ceremony for nonconsecutive 7 years. I am honored to have had the opportunity of receiving and carrying sacred water from the Hopi Nations. My way of life and prayers has given me the opportunity to represent POC and marginalized communities in several committees within the City of Boulder government. Thus, I am currently collaborating with environmental and social justice organizations which focus on reclaiming rights of nature and women communities. I am the Founder of Harvest of All First Nations, and current student at Naropa University to complete my Environmental Studies degree and look forward to further my education with a Masters or PHD towards Indigenous Studies. I firmly believe that by healing women, we can heal the Earth to make a better place for all future generations.
