Protecting, Preserving, Promoting, and Providing for First Peoples in the U.S.

Let’s put our minds together…

– Sitting Bull

The Mission

→ To protect by supporting interrelated Native rights issues.

→ To preserve by assisting in the transmission and preservation of
Native culture.

→ To promote Native people by supporting efforts that promote high quality education, overall health, wellness, and healing, leadership and business development, employment opportunities and community building, and through the education of non-natives on the topics of the history, culture, traditions and present-day challenges of first peoples in the U.S.

→ To provide for basic needs.

 

We are especially interested in supporting projects originating in Native communities, as well as those at promote self-sufficiency.

“Survival of the world depends on our sharing what we have and working together. If we do not the whole world will die. First the planet, and next the people.”

Frank Fools Crow
Teton Lakota Cerimonial Chief

“All things are bound together. All things connect. Whatever happens to the Earth happens to the children of the Earth. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.”

Chief Seattle
Leader of the Suquamish And Duwamish Native American Tribe
