First Nations Development Institute has launched a three-year Native Language Immersion Initiative, which will offer grants to support Native language immersion and cultural retention programs. This new initiative was made possible through a $2.1M grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, which was matched by Lannan Foundation, NoVo Foundation, and Kalliopeia Foundation. Our support of Native language and culture revitalization is support for reconnection to a sense of place within the living network of relationships between the land, culture, and people.
