2020 has been such an intense year. Indigenous nations have taken a huge hit economically, spiritually, and socially and we did not want to rely on their funding as we have in previous years. This year community entities across Maricopa county have come together to bring a virtual experience that our relatives can experience all over. Thank you to following organizations.
- Voices of O’odham Students at ASU- VOSA
- Heard Museum
- American Indian Student Support Services
- Phoenix Art Museum
- Yavapai Stronghold
- Alliance of Indigenous Peoples
2019 Dream Makers
Community Advocates- $1,000+ donations
Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community
We are honored to have received donations from Salt River whose ancestral territories is the land we organize our annual event on. Their gracious donation will go back to the community through organizing this year’s IPDAZ annual celebration.
Yavapai- Prescott Indian Tribe
Yavapai’s are often underrepresented when it comes to the national and regional discussions concerning our Indigenous relatives whose ancestral territories occupy the vast area directly in the middle of Arizona. Their advocacy is greatly appreciated.
Started as a project to raise awareness on the problem with overconsumption of material wealth. They now take an active role in fighting the issues head-on.
