Na’ah Illahee (“Mother Earth” in the Chinook language) supports and promotes the leadership of Indigenous women and girls by providing funding and support to Native women–led organizations and projects, youth training, and environmental justice programming that help to advance sustainable Indigenous cultures and collective capacities. Na’ah Illahee seeks transformative change at the community level by supporting Indigenous women’s traditional models of leadership and organizing, and believes that stronger Indigenous women leaders can determine their own priorities for the future and can protect Mother Earth more effectively.
