About Us: 

Mission/Giving Statement:  Land within the original boundaries of every reservation and other areas of high significance where tribes retain aboriginal interest are in Indian ownership and management. 

Grantmaking Program Areas: Cultural Awareness; Economic Opportunity; Education; Legal Reform; Special Initiatives

Grantmaking Program Area Descriptions:

Cultural Awareness: Use Indian land to help Indian people discover and maintain their culture.

Economic Opportunity: Increase economic assets of Indian landowners by gaining control of Indian lands and by creating financial models that convert land into leverage for Indian landowners.

Education: Educate every Indian landowner about Indian land management, ownership and transference issues so that knowledge becomes power when decisions about land assets are made.

Legal Reform: Reform the legal mechanisms related to recapturing physical, cultural, and economic assets for Indian people and strengthening sovereignty of Indian land.

Special Initiatives: Great things often stem from unique and creative ideas that need a place to grow and develop. The current land situation is the result of several generations of increasingly fractionated ownership, lack of sufficient tribal control, and more than a century of damaging federal laws gone awry. Small steps today may provide long-term solutions for future generations.
