NATIVE AMERICAN SACRED TREES and PLACES

About Us

NASTaP focuses on cultural revitalization, the gathering and sharing of knowledge about history, languages, traditions, customs and inherent values of Native American Indian cultures. This includes rediscovering, acknowledging and preserving sacred places and culturally modified trees. The aim is to build respectful relationships between Native and non-Native peoples with strong emphasis on supporting Native American youth in their cultural revitalization and preservation. We strive to spread mindful awareness and are inclusive of all cultures in our membership.

NASTaP recognizes the oral traditions of North American Indigenous people to be rich and complex. It’s our privilege to hear stories from individuals who learned them directly from their ancestors. Through personal sharing, we learn to reverently value the culturally modified trees and other sacred sites. We invite you to join with us as together we enjoy and attempt to do our part to preserve the treasures around us.
