Founded in 1995, First Peoples Fund's mission is to honor and support the Collective Spirit® of First Peoples artists and culture bearers.

Our vision is to communicate to the world the roots and philosophy of Indigenous artistic expression and its relationship to the collective spirit of First Peoples. We will strive to provide support and voice to the creative Indigenous artists who share their inspiration, wisdom, knowledge and gifts with their communities.

The Collective Spirit® is that which moves each one of us to stand up and make a difference, to pass on ancestral knowledge and simply extend a hand of generosity. We honor and celebrate these artists who personify indigenous values of generosity, wisdom, respect, integrity strength, fortitude and humility. Learn More.
