The name “Seven Generations Law” celebrates the principle, widely believed to have originated with the Iroquois, that for every action we take today, we must consider its impact on the next seven generations. Consciously planning for the future of loved ones and ensuring that our personal legacies endure for generations to come powerfully aligns with this belief.
It also reflects Ariane's experience volunteering, working, and/or partnering with over a hundred NGOs, experts, and companies committed to improving the environment and supporting social justice – including a legal aid internship serving Native American communities in New Mexico.
In honor of using the name Seven Generations Law, we will make a contribution with every completed plan to a non-profit working to protect our planet, promote indigenous rights, and/or advance social justice.

In addition to habitat protection, the SOCP confiscates illegal pet orangutans and reintroduces them to the wild, gradually creating entirely new, genetically viable and self-sustaining wild orangutan populations, ensuring survival of the species.
