Mni invites you to help us create positive changes in the material and spiritual well-being of Reservation residents by reversing land degradation and stopping climate change. We need you to make this difference with us. We are looking for and need people to donate time, energy, and experience in a variety of areas, including water restoration, rainwater catchment construction, aquaponics, reforestation, restoring native ecology, non-conventional sustainable housing, traditional ecological knowledge, and permaculture. Most importantly, we need boots on the ground to implement our vision.

Beginning June 14, 2015, Mni will again hold a two-week water restoration training camp at our base camp at Tatanka Wakpala/Buffalo Creek, a model sustainable community on the east end of the reservation. If you cannot volunteer at this time, you can volunteer any time throughout the summer.

If you would like to be a part of this important effort to heal the world water cycle, please fill out the volunteer application below or contact Candace Ducheneaux at (605) 733-2148.
