Preserve Native American Languages, Blessing Ceremonies and Dance: Support Endowed Chairs

We are seeking to raise one million dollars each to establish these important positions at tribal colleges to preserve and enliven indigenous culture.

We believe that Native American languages and other cultural elements are an essential part of our cultural heritage. Unfortunately, many languages and other cultural practices are in danger of disappearing forever. That’s why we’re launching an ambitious campaign to establish a $1 million endowment to fund  endowed chairs in Native American Languages, Blessing Ceremonies and Dance.

With your help, we can ensure that future generations have the opportunity to learn and preserve these valuable languages and related ceremonies The endowed chair will serve as a permanent source of funding for a dedicated professor to teach and promote Native American languages and other cultural treasures at selected colleges. We believe that by investing in this program, we can make a lasting impact on the cultural identity and heritage of our community.

After-School Programs

Welcome to our fundraising campaign to support after-school programs at Native American schools. We are dedicated to providing students with the opportunity to learn indigenous languages, participate in blessing ceremonies, and engage in traditional dances.

Many Native American communities have a rich cultural heritage that is deeply rooted in their language, ceremonies, and dances. However, with the pressures of modern society, many of these traditions are at risk of being lost. By supporting after-school programs that teach indigenous languages, blessing ceremonies, and dances, we can help preserve these vital parts of Native American culture for generations to come.

Our after-school programs are designed to provide a safe and nurturing environment for students to learn and grow. Our experienced teachers are dedicated to helping students develop a deep understanding of their culture and language. Through our programs, students have the opportunity to connect with their heritage and build a strong sense of identity and pride.

Your donation will help us provide resources, including books, language learning software, and dance regalia, that are necessary to support these programs. With your support, we can ensure that our after-school programs continue to thrive and that students have access to the tools they need to succeed.

We believe that every student deserves the opportunity to learn about their cultural heritage and to participate in traditional ceremonies and dances. Your donation can help make this a reality for Native American students across the country. Thank you for your support!
