Honor and celebrate exceptional American Indian, Native Hawaiian and Native Alaskan artists across the United States by becoming a sponsor of the 2014 Jennifer Easton Community Spirit Awards. Your commitment to this celebration of Native artists and artistry ensures that we can continue to honor culture bearers across the country who embody the Collective Spirit® by preserving and sustaining centuries-long traditions deep within their tribal communities.
About the Community Spirit Awards
This October, four Indigenous artists will receive the Community Spirit Award, joining 76 other artists who have received the honor since the program’s inception. In addition, six artists who were honored in 2013 at ceremonies in their tribal communities will participate in the evening celebration at The Cowles Center for Dance and the Performing Arts in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The celebration consists of an awards ceremony interwoven with fully-produced performances by Native artists.
Why sponsorship is critical
Money raised through the Community Spirit Awards supports fellowships and grants, professional development, and business coaching programs that directly benefit our culture bearers who are passing on their ancestral knowledge in their communities.
Thank you to our host committee who are volunteering their time and talent:
