As someone who understands the value of arts and cultures you know that they provide a seed with the potential to transform communities and embrace
As Native peoples we are mobilized to tell our stories, to convey our courage and resilience. We have a wealth of accurate history, knowledge, and values to share with you. Yet, we can’t do this work by ourselves. We need your help.
You and I recognize that arts and cultures are fundamental to who we are. They are an underlying force that impacts our lives and engages citizens in the rewarding work of building a better democracy. However, less than one-tenth of one percent of all US charitable giving for arts, culture, and heritage goes to Native arts and cultures.
We invite you to support our ambitious nationwide movement to support Native artists and communities by making a generous donation today.
Culture enlightens, culture inspires, and culture empowers. Nowhere is that truer than in the artistic expression of our Native artists and communities, whose work brings a different perspective and has broad relevance in these contemporary times. Your help will enable Native artists to flourish, which is crucial to the wellbeing of the cultural landscape we cherish.
Through generous donations, we have had the honor of supporting over 200 Native artists and organizations in more than 30 states. This includes carvers, mixed-media artists, musicians, dancers, filmmakers, poets, weavers, painters, authors, composers, printmakers, fiber artists and more. We support diverse communities of Tribal Nations and Native organizations in both rural and urban areas.
Our small staff works incredibly hard to be as effective as possible with the funds we receive. Your much-needed contribution will allow us to continue our reach and impact. Your investment now will help us do even more to bring the beauty of Native creativity to the larger world – and greatly increase our country’s cultural wealth in the process. Your gift will be put to immediate good use.
Wishing you a peaceful and joyful holiday season,
T.Lulani Arquette (Native Hawaiian), President & CEO
