Description

#GenIndigenous Northern California Regional Convening
Native Americans in Philanthropy

At our Regional Convenings, funders will have the opportunity to engage directly with NAP and our Generation Indigenous (#GenIndigenous) work that aims to increase investments in Native American communities at the regional and national level. In partnership with My Brother’s Keeper and The California Endowment, these convenings will amplify innovative and culturally appropriate approaches to improve lives and opportunities for Native youth.

At each regional convening, we showcase organizations who have had success in tackling gaps and disparities by building on community assets. Each non-profit or tribal program selected shows direct impact on Native youth with regard to traditional knowledge, well-being & resilience, advocacy, workforce development, environment, health, juvenile justice, and leadership development. Our first regional convening was at Standing Rock in October. We also utilize these opportunities to share our research utilizing Indigenous scholars presenting our report The Indigenous Lifecourse: Strengthening the health and well-being of Native youth. This research highlights and reinforces the strengths of the indigenous worldview, as well as the risks and drawbacks for Native youth today.

Featuring presentations by:

  • American Indian Child Resource Center
  • Bioneers Indigeneity Program
  • California Indian Museum and Cultural Center: Tribal Youth Ambassadors
  • NERDS
  • United National Indian Tribal Youth (UNITY), Inc./Today's Native Leaders
  • The Warrior Institute
