Sacred Places Institute for Indigenous Peoples (SPI) is an Indigenous-led, Los Angeles-based organization that works to build the capacity of Tribal Nations and Indigenous Peoples to protect sacred lands, waters, and cultures. Our board, staff and volunteers come from federally recognized and non- recognized Tribes throughout California and the United States and have collectively been working with California Indian Nations to protect cultural and natural resources for decades.

We work with California Tribes and Native American organizations throughout the state and around the country to make sure that the concerns of Indigenous peoples and Tribal Nations are voiced and addressed in issues about our environmental and cultural resources.
