Daka Yanuna is a multidisciplinary arts project that excavates the history of environmental racism through an Indigenous lens, with the goal of holistic decolonization and sustainable ecological justice.
Daka Yanuna's main goals are:

3. Facilitate community building between Indigenous groups to exchange traditional ecological practices with other Indigenous people.
