Tonatierra Community Development Institute
TONATIERRA is a community-based Indigenous rights non-profit organization based in downtown Phoenix, AZ. Our work centers on advancing Indigenous Peoples self-determination, sustaining cultural and spiritual traditions and maintaining a community center / cultural embassy for local organizing and celebrations. We work with institutions from local legislation, law enforcement and school boards to international governing bodies and have long been a vocal contributor to the proceedings at the United Nations. Our efforts support local-global and holistic indigenous community development initiatives in education, culture, and economic development in accord with the principles of Community Ecology and Self Determination.
