Activist Education Scholarships

Help build cultural bridges

Our education programs build bridges between cultural wisdom, indigenous ways of knowing (epistemologies) and the healing arts & sciences.

When you give to the Scholarship Fund you support the continuing traditional education of a Native Student, and you help strengthen the communities of indigenous nations in the Pacific Northwest and in Mexico. Our 2018-2019 courses are now all online and growing.

Your donation can provide funding to create our next course on Diabetes Prevention for Native Children.

What can you do?

  • Make a donation!
  • Take a course! Buy 2; one for you and donate one for a Native student who couldn’t afford it.
  • Volunteer. We can always join forces for this common goal. Whether want to volunteer with your knowledge, your time, or your ideas; we will be glad to hear from you! Contact us.
