Dear Mitakuyapi (“Relatives” is a traditional greeting in the Lakota language),
#GenIndigenous Regional Funder Convenings Recaps – San Francisco & Seattle
In partnership with My Brother’s Keeper, our #GenIndigenous Regional Convenings provided philanthropy the opportunity to learn more from grassroots nonprofits who have had success in tackling gaps and disparities by building on community assets through traditional knowledge, well-being and resilience, advocacy, workforce development, environment, health, juvenile justice and leadership development. Our first convenings were held in San Francisco and Seattle in April. Read the full recaps and see photos of the events on our blog.

SAVE THE DATE: October Northern California Funder Tour with The California Endowment
In the far northwest corner of California, Del Norte County is home to redwood forests, pristine coastline and 4 federally recognized tribes. As one of The California Endowment’s (TCE) 14 Building Healthy communities sites, come visit a place-based initiative just over the half way mark with the goal of creating health equity. What can building youth and people power look like in rural and Tribal contexts? In a community with limited access to resources, grappling with educational inequities across race and socio-economics, there is a story of hope and power building as youth and families come together to build meaningful relationships and create systems change. Through the work of Generation Indigenous (#GenIndigenous), together we can elevate key issues and address the pressing needs of Native youth with culturally comprehensive approaches. Join NAP and TCE this October 5-7th for our #GenIndigenous Funder Tour in Northern California. Watch nativephilanthropy.org for registration details.
