  • Reaffirm the value of land ownership.
  • Pursue methods and resources to expand landownership for wealth building, cultural sustainability, and improved health outcomes.
  • Develop plans to maintain communal properties, and
  • Explore the expansion of ownership models that lead to equitable and conscious community developments.
