Our Mission
Provide resources to American Indian people to live culturally centered, economically independent, and healthy lives — grounded in sovereignty and indigenous worldview.

Our Values

Family

We acknowledge that families, tribal nations and communities are interconnected.

Respect

Respect is central to our cultural identity and the guiding principle to all our relationships.

Trust

We are committed to developing partnerships based on trust, mutual respect, transparency, and collaboration.

Generosity

We believe that a culture of generosity, both offering and accepting, should be sustained across multiple generations.

Circle of Giving

The Tiwahe Foundation cherishes the timeless American Indian value of communal generosity and reciprocity, embodied in the honor and humility of both giving and receiving, and seeks to instill these values in future generations.

Indigenous World View

The Tiwahe Foundation understands, honors and practices American Indian sovereignty that leads to a vibrant and self-sustaining community through valued traditions, spirituality, language and connection to the earth.
