Jacob is known to many as Jacob Concha -- to his culture, Taos Pueblo Red Willow, he is known as Circling Eagle Above. His passion revolves around service for not only all living beings, but for our home, Mother Earth. Jacob is interested in striving to protect our rights to live in a healthy and sustainable way for all our relations.

His goals for this life involve evolving, co-creating, and living to support the life of our future generations to come - this has encouraged many of his experiences in sustaining culture, protecting water, and living in a healthy manner. He has learned many things thus far and has been inspired by it all - like what is happening at Standing Rock - igniting the flame within even more. Being at Standing Rock helped him to see the reality of it all and how important it is for us all to stand up in solidarity and protection for our home.
