Fund of the Sacred Circle
The Fund of the Sacred Circle (FSC) is Headwaters' longest-standing fund. Since the early 2000s, FSC grants have provided general-operating support to Native-led organizations in Minnesota that focus on community organizing, self-determination and sovereignty, and systems change.
This years’ grantee organizations are doing work that includes language and cultural revitalization; reclamation of traditional lifeways; protection of environment, waters, foodways, and land; sovereignty and treaty rights; civic participation; and narrative change.
