The Nowa Cumig Mission

To establish peace among the races through education. To share values and traditions, and in doing that, to find a common ground. To build on this foundation of respect, understanding, and love so that future generations of every race enjoy the differences of each group while inherently embracing the human family as one. To build up and sustain the welfare, pride, and condition of indigenous communities by establishing Native businesses based on local historic cultural practices of food gathering, production, processing and distribution as well as converting natural resources into marketable art and cottage industry products for sale outside Native communities. Nowa Cumig Institute strives to create educational programs, seminars, events, conferences, rallies, and retreats designed to share with men, women and children throughout the world.
