Celebrating our Indigenous Women Artists during Women’s History Month

In 1987, the U.S. Congress designated March as National Women’s History Month. At the native Arts and Cultures Foundation we are proud to support Native women artists who use their creative voices to bring a valuable perspective to contemporary life, inspire healing and solutions within their communities. Please join us in honoring the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation women artists and culture bearers:
