Join Philanthropy Northwest, MRG Foundation, Spirit Mountain Community Fund and the Native American Rights Fund for a panel conversation at the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians (ATNI) Winter Convening. 

A portion of the morning General Session will feature speakers who will address, from their unique perspectives, how philanthropy can transform to invest in the preservation and protection of tribal sovereignty and the cultures, languages and way of life of tribal nations in the Northwest and do our work in the spirit of the historical context in which we live today. Attendees are highly encouraged to attend the entire day - for a complete Draft Agenda, click here.
