Return to Turtle Island Project

The “Return to Turtle Island” project is an ancestral educational community and retreat center that is based completely on the concept of ancestral and indigenous ways.

Turtle Island is the original name of North America according to many indigenous Native American tribes.

Discover ancestral teachings, healing, and ceremony. Retreat in a safe environment where you will reconnect with nature and learn how to get back to the basics and develop a new love for the simple things in life that matter the most.

The “Return to Turtle Island” project is designed specifically for those wanting to learn more about how the ancestral natives lived. Live as the indigenous people did a thousand years ago! The community is free of electricity, electronics, drugs, and alcohol. Our ideal clients are young adults yet open to all.

It’s a safe place to heal from the fast world and learn the old ways of North America, a concept that returns back to a time before European settlers arrived. The idea now is to embrace all as one tribe and teach others how to live in balance with each other and all life within the earth.


It is Rebekah’s dream, vision, purpose, and mission to create this at this time. She has felt a deep calling for many years and knows the time is now.


Why now? The world has fallen out of balance. There are many things that have caused this and it all started not too long ago.
