With offices in the Pacific Northwest, the foundation provides support to Native artists, tribal organizations, and communities across the nation.

Lulani, a theatre performing artist with degrees in Political Science and Drama and Theatre, brings more than 25 years of professional experience steering organizations to their highest creativity and potential, advocating for cultural perpetuation and social change, and catalyzing change in communities. Lulani’s current work is especially focused on how we attend to cultural equity, social justice, leadership, and the environment to build a more compassionate and just nation.

Andrew Miller brings two decades of human rights activism and international field experience to his work as #AmazonWatch's Washington, D.C. Advocacy Director. Since 2007, Andrew has collaborated closely with Indigenous partners from Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru, facilitating rights-based advocacy at Washington DC-based institutions such as the U.S. Congress and executive offices, multilateral banks, and the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights. He has also supported Indigenous-led campaigns to expel international oil companies such as Talisman Energy and GeoPark from Amazonian Indigenous territories.

NACF Mentor Artist Fellow (Tlingit) donated a woven Chilkat mask to Sealaska Heritage Institute this week in a nod to the Coronavirus pandemic – using an ancient art practice in a new way. The piece, Chilkat Protector Mask, is a work of fine art that will go into the institute’s permanent collection and tell the story of the virus through the Native world view.
