Community Spirit Awards are national awards for established artists who have demonstrated substantial contributions to their community through their careers as artists and their commitment to sustaining the cultural values of Native people. Each year, First Peoples Fund honors and celebrates exceptional American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian artists who embody the Collective Spirit®—that which manifests self-awareness and a sense of responsibility to sustain the cultural fabric of a community.
Nominate an artist and culture bearer from your community by filling out the form below. Nominators tend to be students, mentees, colleagues, and tribal elders who have recognized these exceptional artists for knowing themselves, honoring others, and sustaining spirit in their own communities.
