About Us

    BPN is a network of Afro-indigenous people who have come together through the practices of permaculture, agroecology, natural living and care of the earth. We recognize and honor the ancestral and historical knowledge that each of these land care practices embrace and strive to broaden inter-cultural dialogue around natural earth care; the love of people, plants and animals.
    We honor the ancestral principles of MA’AT that include: Thou shalt not disrespect sacred places, nor do any harm to human or to animals, nor take more than thy fair share of food, nor pollute the water or the land. We salute the Black Panther Party’s “10-point program” that asserts, we want freedom. and power to determine the destiny of our Black Community. We invite people to find healing through our connections with the earth and her energies, as well as each other.

    Through our network we:

  • Create space for dialogue on social media
  • Give access to funding and resources
  • Serve as an informational hub for trainings, events and other culturally relevant education and opportunities
  • Promote the work of Afro-indigenous practitioners to the wider community
