Built in 2002 based on a vision received, the Turtle Lodge seeks to promote Indigenous knowledge, connection to the Earth, positive identity, self-esteem, and self-sufficiency through traditional teachings and ceremonies. In 2008, Traditional Elders and Knowledge Keepers from across Turtle Island (North and Central America) and Abya Yala (South America) named Turtle Lodge their Central House of Knowledge.
