Welcome Friends to the WorldTree Community Website
Our vision is built on an Inclusive, Sustainable, Spiritually Fulfilling and Socially Just World for Everyone!
We are an Interfaith Community Service organization. Our aim is to promote Wellness, Community Culture, Education and Spiritualism. We are a registered, non-profit society and offer many charitable programs. We have no paid staff and the proceeds of our professional services go to supporting our programs and the many requests for assistance and charity.
Reclaiming of Traditional Knowledge
Restoring Positive Leadership roles to Elders
Reconstructing Religious and Spiritual practices which
include Religious Tolerance and connection to Nature and the natural world
Recognition of Indigenous Sovereignty and communities
Resisting that which we are Not! Including elements of
plundering, modernity, and hegemonic forces.
Most importantly by living the teachings of our ancestors with compassion, understanding, gratitude, and humility.
We welcome you to our community and thank you for your support.
We wish you well.
We offer a variety of services to local communities, as well as, online and Outreach to all corners of the Earth. We rely upon charitable donations and yearly fundraising to help offset the operating expenses and costs associated with both our Community Outreach services and wellness programs which included Elder and Youth programs, traditional foods and food security Mediation and counseling. Our long-term projects include a Holistic Trans-personal gathering place: offering unique World Conscious education and study programs and a Cultural Long Haus that we might share our culture and teaching with the younger generations and the greater community. Our short term goals is the building of our Canoe and Canoe Shead for our Youth and Elders. Our Vision is to provided youth an opportunity to share and connect with Elders Teachers and healthy lifestyle choices. We expected to host many community groups in our canoe and to meet many more on the Coast Salish Seas at Tribal Journeys and other community canoe gatherings. We thank the many donors for supporting our Vision.
One Spirit Canoe:
(Black= Funds raised to-date April 2012)
Our Cedar one Spirit Canoe Family has successfully complete another season of Tribal Journeys and successful raised $2500.00 towards our own canoe. We Thank Potlatch funds for supporting our 2011 Elders on Tribal Journeys as well as the CNSC -Canoe Nation Support Consortium for the donation of radios, Safety equipment and life Jackets. We hope to hold another Rummage sale this June as well as our raffles and t-shirts sale on the 2012 Pull to Squaxin WA. Our special thanks to the many large and small donations from the community in helping our youth and Elder's as we grow towards our own canoe program. Yearly a majority of the cost for our canoe Journeys is taken up by canoe rental fees and trailering and hauling; we loose out on many opportunities for the Youth to get out and practices and for the teachable moments with the older relations.
