The Kaayani Sisters, consisting of Trixie Bennett, Louise Brady, Eva Burk, Tia Holley, Gloria Simeon, Disney Williams and Naomi Michalsen have developed the Respectful Harvesting Guidelines, a living document which they will edit and update as necessary. The project has been initiated and organized by Naomi Michalsen (Kaasei Training & Consulting), and generously funded by the Seventh Generation Fund for Indigenous Peoples, Inc.
The Respectful Harvesting Guidelines are dedicated to the memory of the late Dr. Rita Pitka Blumenstein.

Thank you to Naomi Michalsen and the Kaayani sisters for creating these much needed guidelines! Naomi Michalsen, Gloria Simeon and Tia Holley are graduates and former students from the UAF Ethnobotany Program.
