Honor the Earth Allocates $82,500 in New Grants to 23 Indigenous Communities Across 12 States and 1 Canadian Province
The organizations receiving grants this year focus on important projects including food systems and farming, youth and education, sacred lands, renewable energy, anti-fossil fuel projects, and arts and media programming. The grantees aligned to the same sustainable principles as Honor the Earth, and recipients share strategies and learn from each other across borders.
Examples of Recipient Initiatives: Sustainable Nations in Tucson, Arizona, is working to rebuild the resilience of Native nations through culturally and spiritually-based professional training programs and project development in renewable energy. The Village of Solomon in Nome, Alaska, is drafting the tribe’s first renewable energy plan. In Minnesota, KKWE Niijii Radio works to promote justice in the community through its programming including Native America Calling, Minnesota Native News, National Native News, and its Ojibwe Language programs, which are the foundation of community wealth and civic dialogue. .
