Our Vision

Native Arts and Cultures:

"Our Land" (2007) by Kay Walking Stick (Cherokee)Bring valuable perspectives to contemporary life.

Inspire healing within Native communities and among Native peoples and the broader population.

Provoke thought, spark discussion, explore solutions and add a vital contribution to our communities and the world.


The Native Arts and Cultures Foundation works with American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian communities to strengthen Native knowledge and wellbeing.

The Native-led national nonprofit supports contemporary Native artists and culturemakers to create lasting, positive impact on the arts, Native communities and society as a whole. Financial support from innovative funders, Native Nations and generous arts patrons make this vision a reality.

Thank you to everyone who makes this work possible!
