Tribal Partnerships Initiative

The goal of the Tribal Partnerships Initiative is to support humanities projects on the Blackfeet, Flathead, Rocky Boy, Fort Belknap, Fort Peck, Northern Cheyenne and Crow Reservations, as well as the Little Shell nation, with up to $5,000 in funding annually. These will be informal relationships rather than conventional grant-driven processes.

At this time we are asking potential partners to share their aspirations and stories with us by phone, e-mail, or in person. We are in a listening, learning and gathering mode. We will form up to three partnerships each year, beginning January 1, 2018.
