Be A Good Ancestor

Warm greetings to all our Relatives and Friends! We at the Seventh Generation Fund for Indigenous Peoples are most grateful for your support. On our 40th Anniversary, we invite you to join the celebration by making a donation to support Indigenous Peoples' rights! Every morning we wake up to news of yet another assault on our Peoples and on Mother Earth. For 525 years, we have remained resilient and have fought to protect our Peoples, our feathered and four legged relatives, and our homelands.

Tradition Bearers for Bio-cultural Diversity Fellowship

Native American / First Nations individuals who are grounded culturally and in community are the focus of this Fellowship. They seldom have the financial resources and time for deeper contemplation in their own culture or the chance to engage and explore new skills and empower their leadership. The Tradition Bearers for Bio-cultural Diversity Fellowship provides support for individual Indigenous leaders to focus on, reflect, and contemplate the trajectory of their work in stewardship for biological diversity and cultural identity. Awards of $10,000 each to two applicants.

Thriving Women's Initiative

Seventh Generation Fund for Indigenous Peoples’ requests proposals for Thriving Women’s Initiative for projects that nurture and support the health and vitality of Indigenous women, girls, and families. Applications should include work that supports traditional birthing and midwifery practices; restoring traditional herbal medicines; cultural food systems; revitalizing intergenerational wisdom exchanges; coming of age ceremonies; and Native women generated approaches to empowerment, healing and traditional practices.

We have taken the lead to coordinate and bring together, for peer centered learning and exchange, thousands of Indigenous leaders, artists, culture bearers, youth, elders and activists through a vast array of specially-focused events.
