Transforming Community
Through Native Arts

A Gift For Thriving Native Arts and Cultures

At Native Arts & Cultures Foundation, we invest in the power of arts as an agent for transformational change rooted in our Native stories, our strengths and our journeys as Indigenous peoples. Our commitment to Native artists and communities is to catalyze new work that influences positive social change.

Your support immediately impacts our ability to advance the work of Native artists and culture bearers who positively contribute to their communities across the country.

Will you consider making your gift in support of Native arts and cultures today?
