2015 Cultural Capital Grant  
Call for Applications
September 1, 2014 Deadline!
The 2014 Cultural Capital Program provides tradition bearers of tribal communities the opportunity to further their important cultural work. The program is designed to support previous year Community Spirit Award recipients allowing them to commit more time in teaching and sharing their ancestral knowledge and practices with others who want to learn.
The grant program will aid artists in develop local networks for leveraging other resources and will provide technical assistance and capacity building support as needed by the master artist/teacher.

First Peoples Fund is interested in Cultural Capital projects that will Impact the next generation through reciprocity and community spirit. Examples of this are:

  • Passing on knowledge – as mentors and leaders
  • Documentation for the next seven generations to access this knowledge
  • Artists as Cultural Resource
Eligibility Requirements: NEW!
