The Indigenous Visionaries: Women’s Leadership Program (Indigenous Visionaries) at the American Indian College Fund (College Fund) supports the empowerment and success of Native women faculty and staff at tribal colleges and universities (TCUs) through a ten-month fellowship. Participating fellows receive a $4,000 stipend and place-based and experiential professional and personal development through guided training and cultural learning from College Fund staff and a broad network of Native women leaders.
The Standing in Our Power Ojibwe cultural project is working to reduce the impact of the long history of cultural genocide. The project aims to provide women with the opportunity to learn cultural roles and teachings to take back power and reclaim their sacredness as women.
The Native Plant Revival project goal is to restore native plans while sharing their benefits and connections to Indigenous people, their importance for the ecosystem, and ways they can provide for every creature and organism.
