As a company rooted in Indigenous culture, our vision is to build a vibrant global brand that makes positive impacts in Indigenous communities. We were honored to participate in the National Outdoor Recreation Roundtable (ORR) Executive Forum in Washington D.C. earlier this month, where leaders from diverse sectors converged to advance equity, sustainability, and the preservation of our natural landscapes. One of the event's highlights was the active engagement of U.S. Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland, the first Indigenous Cabinet Secretary in U.S. history. Secretary Haaland's participation in discussions and sharing of insights underscored the importance of Indigenous leadership and perspectives in shaping policies that impact our environment and communities.

As the first Indigenous Cabinet Secretary, Secretary Haaland's advocacy for equitable outdoor access and environmental stewardship deeply resonates with our values. Her historic role serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of representation and inclusion in shaping policies that affect us all.

We extend our deepest gratitude to the Outdoor Recreation Roundtable for organizing this event and to Secretary Haaland for her inspiring leadership. Together, let us continue to honor our past, care for the earth, and strive to be what our ancestors dreamed us to be.
