The toolkit has everything you need to inspire global discussions about environmental responsibility, community, and nature. Request a toolkit, which includes a copy of Living Nations, Living Words—an anthology of Native American poetry edited by the U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo—and gather around a campfire, dinner table, or drinks to spark a conversation.
