Tó Łání Enterprises’ mission is to cultivate healthy, safe, and prosperous communities by strengthening food, water, and economic systems for our Native communities in the lower Little Colorado River Valley, empowering our youth, and promoting Native cultural knowledge.” 

“Food sovereignty is the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems. It puts the aspirations and needs of those who produce, distribute and consume food at the heart of food systems and policies rather than the demands of markets and corporations.” Declaration of Nyéléni, the first global forum on food sovereignty, Mali, 2007

TLE’s Grow Our Own program guides our work and empowers us to build local capacity to do for ourselves as we once did. Growing our own food again in area gardens and farms will allow us to reclaim our health and sovereignty, and strengthen our culture. We host workshops and courses at our three acre demonstration garden and orchards at the TLE business site lease.

Safe Water to Drink. Protecting our children forward seven generations, that is what it is about. and reducing the number of health problems associated with ingesting too many of these contaminants. It is also about dignity. Access to clean drinking Water is a human right.
