Awaken. Explore. Dream. Discover.
An Indigenous led volunteer service core ([historically]: corps) that supports our elders, youth, and Indigenous communities with regenerative solutions in areas such as food, water, social governance, economics, and permaculture systems based on an Interconnected Community Model.
Through IndigiCore we develop advocacy and education for bringing accountability into awareness through collaborative governance agreements that bring to the table all parties involved with land, water, food systems, waste management, and degradation in affected Indigenous territories within the Americas or abroad. We rest on four main pillars for IndigiCore as is with the Medicine Wheel.
Indigenous Youth Programs
We sponsor grant and direct support programs for Indigenous focused projects that provide specific resources to empower Indigenous youth with local and global opportunities to participate in economic development, job creation and training through our Volunteer Programs.
Indigenous Elder Programs
We develop programs and project plans and send teams that offer direct support for elder-led Indigenous projects in international territories that are in coherence with our network of partners who help offer local resources, health and wellness services, economic access, construction and trade, education and health advisors, primary skills development, advocacy coordination, media-based campaigning, or another required support system in order to effect the whole of the endeavor in a positive way.
Volunteering at any number of our annual trips, projects, events, or collaborations with other organizations is a rewarding and life fulfilling experience, as is supporting our volunteers as they expand their stewardship and roles in life. The development of the IndigiCore training program and education center is where we will facilitate prototyping, co-working, research and development, and to host events training for SpiritQuests and ecotourism experiences for Indigenous led volunteer projects that plan and manage projects throughout the world focused on building co-created community centers (solar, food, forest, farm, kitchen, art, and gathering gardens) and deploying teams and resources for short term engagements for disaster recovery, traumatic event response, and community awareness projects focused on personal, social and environmental wellness.
We develop work/trade education and training programs for primary and higher education, collaborate on curriculum for schools, and provide on-the-job training development for students of all ages. We model our curriculum with the StarLion Education Initiative and our Haudenosaunee constitution and the Great Law of Peace.
Up to now it’s been hard to give back financially unless a project formed its own foundation. Now they don’t have to - the The Tree of Light Collective is a non-profit umbrella organization providing financial and legal infrastructure for Indigenous, environmental, and community projects for distributed collaboration. The IndigiCore Fund operates on transparency and collaboration as primary tenants in any endeavor that we participate in, and helps our donors see experiential report cards on how funds are used around the world across our Youth, Elder, Volunteer, and Education programs.

Through our annual SpiritQuest sacred voyages we work to inspire people and communities in conscious growth and expansion, exercising the spirit through ceremony and intentional group focus, and learning from the land, people, and tribes in communities that we travel to and have relationships with. Watch this short introduction video for more details on how our voyages work.
