The Intercultural Leadership Institute, also known as ILI, is a collaborative effort of First Peoples Fund, Alternate ROOTS, the National Association of Latino Arts & Culture and the PA'I Foundation. These four core partner organizations have a shared commitment to pursue cultural equity and to support artists, culture bearers, and other arts professionals as change-makers in their communities. 

A group of 30 emerging and established artists, arts managers and culture bearers in various stages of career development was selected for the first ILI cohort for 2017-2018. First Peoples Fund will host the cohort in Lakota Country in September 2017. Learn more about ILI at the National Association of Latino Arts & Culture's website.
