On October 11th, 2022, indigenous people’s day was celebrated, and now, with the help of the northland foundation, a special opportunity is being offered through its Maada’ookiing program.

This newly developed grant will help to provide resources to raise awareness and greater attention and action on this matter.

According to a December 2020 missing and murdered indigenous woman task force report released by the Minnesota legislature, indigenous females make up 15 % of missing person cases and nine percent of female homicides.

Northland foundation will offer this grant to help support grassroots activities to raise awareness, urge change and focus on promoting healing around Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Relations.

“This grant is but one opportunity to support efforts to address the systems and institutions that uphold and perpetuate domestic violence and human trafficking and violence against our relatives,” says the Director of Grantmaking for Northland Foundation, Erik Torch.

The northland foundation will award up to ten grants worth 25 hundred dollars each to individuals or small groups.
