The generous donations of tribal partners make it possible for NACF to help sustain and strengthen tribal arts and cultures. NACF supports the creation and sharing of new works by emerging and seasoned Native artists, mentor-apprentice opportunities, and community-engaged arts projects.
Your tribal entity can partner with the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation in many ways. Some examples include supporting regional fellowships for Native artists, sponsoring events, or providing in-kind donations of goods or services. For more information, contact 360-314-2421.
Our artistic and cultural expressions go far beyond mere beauty. They speak to our long presence on this earth and the essence of who we are as Native peoples. At NACF, we envision a society where flourishing Native arts and cultures are essential to the overall integrity of the cultural landscape. It is so important for Native Nations, foundations and individuals to come together to support art and culturemakers, and the valuable work of organizations like this foundation.
