- Topic: Nalwoodi Denzhone Community Webinar: We Grow, We Harvest, We Share Featured Speakers: Juan Arias UA Federally Recognized Tribal Extension Program Agent; Eric Shin, Nalwoodi Denzhone Community Project Manager, and Carrie Curley Vice President, Nalwoodi Denzhone Community. Nalwoodi Denzhone Community’s team is a collective of tribal and non-tribal members invested in the San Carlos Apache community. Some were born and raised in the region, while others have come from all over the U.S. to work in healthcare, art, education, corrections, and other public service areas in San Carlos.
- Webinar Overview: In the heart of the Eastern Arizona food desert lies San Carlos, home for the San Carlos Apache people. There, on an 80-acre former tree farm, Nalwoodi Denzhone Community (NDC) seeks to reawaken strength and beauty in at-risk, Apache youth and restore the harmony (Shil Gozhoo) that comes from Apaches being reconnected to their Creator, their land, and their natural heritage. The NDC is committed to to bringing new inspiration that leads to new possibilities towards personal transformation, establishing new associations for emotional support, and cultivating new skills for sustainable living. NDC supports and fosters community gardening, support groups, open mic nights, a jiu jitsu club, children’s summer camps and other activities that sow seeds of hope back into growing a culture of healing. Come learn about and support this amazing group of people!
