Through regenerative farming practices, permaculture and indigenous land wisdom, we are committed to growing and eating healthy food, and sharing knowledge, seeds and building relationships within our local communities.
Larry Littlebird (Laguna/ Santo Domingo Pueblo) is the Founding Director of Hamaatsa where he celebrates an indigenous holistic way of life. A master storyteller, Native filmmaker/artist and author of Hunting Sacred, Everything Listens, Larry shares spiritual roots of sustainability and ways of blessing for inspiring transformative leadership and social action. His signature experiential land based programs have had a profound impact on people’s lives, globally, nationally and locally. Learning to Listen© is a provocative spoken word experience that Littlebird presents as a keynote speaker and custom tailors for group retreats, conferences and story camps.

His legacy continues on the lands of Hamaatsa, an indigenous continuum – story gathering place and sustainable living farm he co-founded with his wife Deborah, where he celebrates an indigenous holistic way of life.

We invite you to enjoy videos from our 2017 Conference here. The annual Quivira Conference is internationally renowned for bringing together leaders, innovators, and stewards of the land for three days of provocative plenary presentations, roundtable discussions, and networking with diverse attendees from across the southwest, the country, and globe. The conference creates a unique environment where ideas are sown, exchanged, and grown. Quivira’s outstanding speakers and attendees contribute expertise in ranching, farming, conservation, community, and all things soil, which is the key to it all. Every attendee brings something unique to the table, and each departs with inspiration, new connections, broader perspectives, and the tools necessary to effect change.
