Heart of the Great Turtle Island – Gchi Mshiikenh Deh Minising


We need to raise $1.5 million over five years in order to receive a federal grant of $500,000. The total $2 million raised will be used to transform our vision to an actionable site plan, and to begin construction on projects. We need your help to reach our goal. Consider making a donation of any size – every little bit makes a difference – today.

Your gift in support of National Endowment for the Humanities challenge grant CHA-261927 will be used to match federal funding and will be expended for the approved purposes of the grant.
