The Turtle Island Project: Respecting the environment and Native American culture (and all Earth-based traditions like Celts & Indigenous Peoples)

The Turtle Island Project

The non-profit Turtle Island Project (TIP) in northern Michigan promotes respect for the environment and Native Americans.

The project was founded in July 2007 and battles exploitation of the environment, racism, and religious imperialism.

The TIP tackles numerous environment and social issues including learning to protect the planet from Earth-based cultures.

Founders are Rev. Dr. Lynn Hubbard., the pastor of Eden on the Bay Lutheran Church in Munising, Michigan who has worked extensively with the Lakota tribe in South Dakota; and Rev. Dr. George Cairns, a United Church of Christ minister, an expert in Celtic spirituality and a research professor of Theology at Chicago Theological Seminary
