"The Virgil Masayesva Environmental Learning Center is dedicated to the memory of Virgil Masayesva (1948-2005), ITEP's co-founder and original director. Virgil was known throughout Indian country and beyond as a dedicated leader and tireless advocate for Native American environmental self-determination. Together with William Auberle, he conceived the idea of a tribal environmental training institute that would in 1992 become the Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals."
