First Peoples Fund
A Leadership Cohort Organization
Founded in 1995, First Peoples Fund's mission is to honor and support the Collective Spirit® of First Peoples artists and culture bearers. Collective Spirit® is that which manifests self-awareness and a sense of responsibility to sustain the cultural fabric of a community. As such, we are dedicated to the preservation, advancement and well-being of American Indian, Native Hawaiian and Alaska Native arts and culture, and our work is deeply rooted in Indigenous values and place-based practices. We strive to provide support and voice to creative Indigenous artists who share their inspiration, wisdom, knowledge and gifts with their communities.
