Peyote can be central to maintaining Indigenous cultural sovereignty, but its cultivation is often under threat. Hear from the Native-led initiative that is protecting it.
The Indigenous Peyote Conservation Initiative (IPCI) is an international collaborative of top leaders in the peyote conservation effort. The organization's focus is on building the sustainability and Indigenous sovereignty of peyote across the U.S., Mexico, and Canada. Sandor Iron Rope and Steve Moore both serve as Board Members for the IPCI, and Miriam Volat is the Executive Director.
