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.

During the year-long span of this fellowship recipients will expand their education (through traditional knowledge, education systems, or other capacity building activities), engage more extensively in their culture, and exploring the esoteric knowledge of the bio- and cultural diversity of the world. This exploration may be fulfilled through the expression of traditional language and/or stewardship practices in relation to Mother Earth.

Fellowship awardees will be notified by March 8, 2019. Awardees will receive $10,000 towards advancing their education (cultural or academic), further their community-driven work or other efforts as a means to deepen their knowledge and build capacity towards improving and continuing their work within their communities.

The Smithsonian Center for Arctic Studies will also host the scholars for a full day, with opportunities for scholars to present their issues, meet staff, and tour collections.
