We journey to Tanzania where we're engaging with restorative and racial justice partners, creating space for what is possible for our climate and communities via access and mutuality with the land. Those who journey with us will be immersed in conversation and ancestral practice for sustaining ecological systems and learn how African indigenous people view their relationship to the earth and the living, natural environment. On this journey we will visit activists Charlotte Hill O’Neal and Pete O’Neal, two activists building a peaceful community and stewarding land in Arusha, Tanzania for over 53 years. We will visit the United African Alliance Community Center (UAACC) was formed in 1991 with the expressed purpose of sharing and disseminating knowledge in areas relevant to the promotion of creative, productive and wholesome lifestyles giving a strong sense of empowerment to the youth both in village and urban settings in Tanzania while strengthening opportunities for positive global community ties among people of diverse cultures around the world.


  1. Engage in learning exchange with the O’Neal’s, our hosts, who became African American pioneers in their ancestral homeland.
  2. Learn about windmills, farming, raising livestock, and appropriate technology.
  3. Our journey will consist of medicine walks, visiting the traditional Boma, and visiting the hot springs as well as traditional homesteading and vegan/vegetarian lifestyle in East Africa.
  4. Learn about African indigenous ways of honoring land and how the O’Neals developed a homestead on the slopes of Mr. Meru in Imbaseni, a rural village in the heart of the traditional homeland of the WaMeru tribe.
  5. Learn from the traditional Maasai tribes in Tanzania during our stay.
