Native Arts


PA’I Foundation is seeking 3-4 performing Artists for their touring production, The Indigenous Road Show. Application deadline is Saturday, August 31, 2019 at 11:59pm PST (Pacific Standard Time). For more details on this amazing opportunity, please see PDF attached or contact AIP Program ManaIndigenous Road Show overview - 8-1-19-page-001ger, Ed Bourgeois at ebourgeois@westarts.org.

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.

Click HERE for more information.

The Tradition Bearers for Bio-cultural Diversity Fellowship is accepting applications until January 31, 2018.

Candidates for this fellowship are Native American / First Nations working in their communities in the United States or Canada. This fellowship strives to build an awardee’s social network, individual capacity, strengthen their contributions to their field of endeavor, and provide direct support for a deeper inquiry into their culture and work. This is an opportunity for leaders in Indigenous communities to advance their aspirations and capacity, and an opportunity to re-invest these learnings back into their communities.

The deadline to apply is January 31, 2018. Applications may be submitted between now and the deadline. All applications will be reviewed for selection between February 1 – March 2, 2018. Fellowship awards will be publically announced by the Seventh Generation Fund on March 9, 2018.

Applicants must submit the application and include a 2-4 page personal statement outlining their experience in community-based work, how this work has advanced or continues to advance their communities, and how receiving this Fellowship would be beneficial in their work. Applications must accompany 2-3 letters of recommendation and photograph of the applicant.

Materials may be submitted electronically at fellowship@7genfund.org or mailed to our office at P.O. Box 4569 Arcata, CA 95518. For further information, please contact Carlrey Arroyo, Advancement Assistant, at our office at 707-825-7640 or at fellowship@7genfund.org. Application materials are available on our website at: http://7genfund.org/tradition-bearers-bio-cultural-diversity-fellowship.

The Dream Warriors Scholarship was created by a handful of young Native Artists to pass on passion by encouraging youth from our communities and all across Indian Country to pursue their artistic dreams. As working and living artists, Kelly Holmes, Mic Jordan, John and Kenn Little, Tall Paul, Frank Waln, and Tanaya Winder all believe each person has a unique gift to offer the world. These gifts can heal and bring about change. As a collective, they believe we can all help to uplift each other. In doing what they love, the artists hope to show that a career in the arts can be realistic and achievable. The Dream Warriors Scholarship encourages high school Native American / Alaska Native / Native Hawaiian seniors to pursue their creative curiosities and passions by providing a scholarship geared towards these endeavors.
