New models will come when donors come to the table as true partners with Indigenous Peoples – not in transactions where Indigenous Peoples are funded to implement the donor’s agenda but in relationships where Indigenous Peoples are funded to design and deliver the project. Those institutions willing to approach these challenges with a sense of humility and a curiosity about those whose lives differ radically from their own can be the bridges to a healthier, truly sustainable future. Embracing a new philanthropic paradigm in which Indigenous Peoples are full programme participants rather than merely the recipients of assistance will profoundly change their lives – and ours.”

– Rebecca Adamson, Founder and Past President of Firstpeoples.org

To date, the following companies and organizations have listened to and supported Clan Mothers’ Indigenous-led solutions by providing or donating funding, goods, services, and expertise. They clearly understand the capacity of Indigenous peoples to develop through the resurgence of their own culture, systems of governance, and self-determination. As a result of their support, this project will change the pathway forward, improving the lives of Indigenous communities from nation to nation. It will also provide an innovative model of healing and social innovation.
