HOZHO VOICES OF
Indigenous reciprocity refers to a cultural and relational practice (K’e’) found in many Indigenous communities worldwide. It involves the mutual exchange of goods, services, knowledge, and support within community or between different communities. Reciprocity goes beyond a simple transactional exchange; it is deeply embedded in the values and traditions of Indigenous cultures. It often emphasizes a sense of interconnectedness, responsibility, and balance in relationships, acknowledging that giving and receiving are interconnected aspects of community life. Indigenous reciprocity reflects a holistic worldview that extends to the environment, relationships, and the well-being of the community.
We are currently in reciprocity relationship with individuals and organizations such as NDN Collective, Colorado Plateau Foundation, First Nations, New Mexico Grows, Kenney Family Foundation, Navajo Technical University, Dine College, Praising Earth, Seeds of Harmony, Spirit Farms, Navajo Nation Crownpoint Wellness Center, Crownpoint Indian Health Center, Borrego Pass Elementary School, Navajo Sheep Project, Gadfly Strategies, Studio Balcones, and Dine Be Iina.
