Who We Are

Our Vision…. is for Kainai to value and live in a clean, healthy and protected environment that
supports a sustainable society and balances our economy and traditional connection to the air,
water, land and animals.


Knowledge in Action

Oki. The following are the extended family of the Kainai Ecosystem Protection Association. Take some time and visit our knowledge base and see the positive work being done across Naapi's territory and beyond...


Kainai Plants

This site weaves these strong threads of connection. A web of children, elders, plants, landscape and the stories that bind them together. These stories provide a path for our children to the future. A path that remembers and in the remembering, renews.

Honoring Our Ancestors Knowledge

Saokio Heritage is a community-based organization led by Indigenous women that works to revitalize traditional ecological knowledge and Indigenous languages in a modern context. The Blackfeet (Amskapi Piikani) once called themselves the Saokio-tapi or the prairie people. (Saokio is pronounced like Tokyo.)


We are The Narwhal

The storytellers in any society hold tremendous power. At The Narwhal, we recognize that this power represents both a privilege and a responsibility and we aim to use this power for the public good. To that end, we must recognize the inequities in Canadian media and in Canadian society at large. ​



Indigikitchen was formed to foster an appreciation and love of traditional Native foods. Along the way, we've branched out to supporting Native producers, building Indigenous gardens, and teaching some of the important background surrounding the colonization of our foodways.



Our conservation initiatives span a variety of goals as well as the entirety of the region in which we work. Learn more about what we do, where we work and our current projects.

Learning from the land


Sustainable societies must ultimately balance the impact of human activity with the quality of ecosystems that support life. Albertans have told us what is important to them, so we gear our programs to support and strengthen the environmental nonprofit community in Alberta working on issues related to water, land use and climate change.
