MOVING FORWARD TOGETHER

We Challenged Ourselves
To Do Better Than Our Past

OUR SPIRIT

By bridging ancient wisdom with modern technology, connecting a global network of wise practice and experience, and supporting teams, leaders and communities with tools, training, coaching and mentorship, we support in the creation of healthy, vibrant nations and self-empowered people.

OUR VALUES

GIDT uses ancient wisdom to build new ways forward. We work in collaboration with other forward-thinking communities, organizations and companies. We use a true-value accounting system to ensure that we are not being wasteful in our efforts or our intentions. With true-value standards no stone is left unturned and no resource is overlooked.

OUR EXPERTISE

We advocate for, educate and bring awareness to better ways of working together and bridging the Indigenous and secular ways of knowing. We are reframing the conversation around land management and conservation through the Indigenous lens. As an reciprocity philosophy, Indigenous Nations once had systems that led the world in land management.
