The Burns Paiute Tribe’s Growing Our Wadatika Yaduan Nobi Oral History Project addresses the need to protect and continue to share the community’s oral traditions.
The voices of Native artists and culturebearers are steadily reaching larger and more diverse audiences across the nation. Both urban and rural Native artists and arts organizations possess the same potential to inspire and energize their communities and to play a leading role in sparking conversation around social issues.
To address the lack of economic resources and to progress social change, Native Arts and Cultures Foundation’s Community Inspiration Program (CIP) Native Nation Partnerships (NNP) initiative provides funding from $5,000 to $10,000 to Native Nation arts organizations in support of an arts and cultures project. This funding requires at least a 50% in-kind or monetary match by the tribe or organization. In addition to funding, NACF offers its support and expertise by assisting with project infrastructure and logistics.
