Native Arts & Cultures

Two men look closely at an earthenware vase. The man in the forefront is holding the vase while wearing light blue gloves and both men wear glasses. The vase has geometric designs in black and reddish orange ink around the middle and it rests on a foam plate. The man in the forefront is SAR Jim Enote of the Zuni Pueblo tribe.

Our grantmaking helps ensure that Native arts and cultures in the regions where we work are more deeply understood, more widely practiced, and more broadly recognized. We support organizations working directly in community so that artistic skills and cultural knowledge can thrive sustainably.
