Crowdfunding allows us to support critical programming that directly impacts indigenous communities. We are responsible for what many consider unconventional work, but this work ultimately allows us to reclaim our traditional indigenous ways of knowing while empowering community members to join us on our journey towards environmental and social justice and equity for all.
