"If we take care of the land, the land takes care of us," says Indigenous leader Valérie Courtois. As climate change continues to devastate the planet, Indigenousguardians are helping to honor the responsibility to the land, monitoring water quality, conducting research and working to restore key species. Courtois invites all to support the guardians working to ensure that humanity has a future on Earth - and to discover that healing the land can transform as well.
