A community of Indigenous Maskoke persons have reclaimed  some of their ancestral homelands in what is now Weogufka, AL. Through a number of collaborations – including with Alabama’s Wildlife and Freshwater Fish Division – the project will seek to  re-introduce native plants and animals and to reawaken traditional arts practices, including language revitalization and women’s medicinal practices, in an effort to improve health outcomes for  the community. 

This project is partnering with the Alabama Wildlife and Freshwater Fish Division to reintroduce native sturgeon to the local river.
