Seventh Generation Fund For Indigenous Peoples
DescriptionThe Fundís Thriving Women Program amplifies Native women-led work around birthkeeping, motherhood, and kinship; cultural continuity; and a world without violence against women. Funded Birthkeeping projects centralize traditional birthing systems, motherhood, and kinship-building, such as midwifery, prenatal community education, and sisterhood convenings/groups. Funded Cultural Community projects support Native identity development and cultural education of women and girls, such as on ancestral languages, traditional foods and lands, coming-of-age ceremonies, Indigenous concepts of gender and community roles, and other cultural activities. Funded Violence Against Women projects include leadership development, emergency shelter and crisis support services, issue advocacy, educational workshops, and traditional approaches to healing and protection. Grants range from $1,000 to $30,000 for the Contiguous United States, Native Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. For Native Alaska-based projects, grants range from $10,000 to $50,000. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
