MISSION: Ecosocial justice

The Drexel Morrell Center is a community who

believes in the power of EDUCATION as an act of justice,

that gives voice to the silenced and forgotten…

and, in the passion of STORYTELLERS AND ARTISTS, 

creates a new story

rooted in the wisdom of the ANCESTORS

that promotes eco-social justice and equity for all life,

that fosters a HEALING

of the Earth and her people.


“The Drexel-Morrell Center is a new place for education,

healing, and justice for a sustainable tomorrow.”


We invite our local and global communities to envision, create and sustain a place that


  • develops as a site for gathering as a community, to research the ancestors’ stories and that shapes and creates a new narrative for the future;

  • creates a place of ecosocial justice that honors the story of the land and the people;

  • establishes a place of education and inspiration dedicated to renewing the Earth where individuals and organizations gather to celebrate the wisdom of the past and create a path for justice today and into the future.
