Our Code and Principles of Community

Tree of Totems is part of a collective we call Tribe of Ravens.  We're families, individuals, teachers, humble students, craftsmen who strive to live as a village while honoring the uniqueness of our separate lives.  In this we support one another living connected to nature and Spirit and the values we wish to exemplify in our lives.
