COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS

PROGRAMS

Sacred Fire Foundation supports two Community Partnerships programs―Protecting the Sacred and Seeds of Trust―funding projects, programs and initiatives that strengthen the worldviews, sacred teachings, and lifeways of Indigenous People. By investing in Indigenous knowledge and wisdom traditions, we serve as a bridge. When Indigenous communities are strong, we all benefit. We share in the responsibility to document and raise awareness about Indigenous wisdom in order that their unique, ancestral ways are not lost and that the rest of humankind can take note, and learn from their varied experiences accumulated through millennia.

MEDIA

Sacred Fire Foundation is always pursuing ways to create community and sacred spaces, even online and virtually.  Our digital avenues share stories, explore a variety of topics, highlight events and gatherings, and invite people to join in the conversation. We look for ways to invite people from diverse backgrounds and belief systems, to come together, around the same burning fire. As Kahontakwas Diane Longboat (Mohawk) says, “We can still have a sacred connection even if we are not together.”

EVENTS

We host a handful of in-person events annually, creating gatherings that will inspire attendees to awaken to Indigenous wisdom, values and perspectives. Our Voices of Wisdom series invites you to sit with Elders and the annual Wisdom Treasure Award ceremonially show tribute to an Elder who has demonstrated a lifelong commitment to teaching, service, and community.
