Northwest #GenIndigenous Regional Convening

By Tachini Pete, Northwest Regional Weaver, Native Americans in Philanthropy

On April 28th, 40 people representing regional philanthropic and Native-led nonprofit organizations convened to share innovative approaches in addressing the challenges facing Native youth today. This event was held in downtown Seattle at Seattle Foundation’s new event space. NAP’s convening partners, Potlatch Fund, Philanthropy Northwest, and Seattle Foundation provided national, regional and community perspectives of philanthropy in Native country. There were 12 nonprofit storytellers that shared their innovative work with the group. The #GenIndigenous Regional Convenings provide 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.

As part of this continued work, we invite you to stay engaged with our Storyteller presenters and the amazing innovations their projects and programs are doing in the Northern California region and for their communities:
