The First Peoples’ Cultural Foundation is a non-profit society and registered charity established in 2000 to honour, support and revitalize Indigenous languages, arts and cultural heritage. Indigenous languages, arts and cultural heritage hold thousands of years of accumulated knowledge, wisdom, rituals, customs, governance and legal systems, spirituality and cultural ways of being.

As an Indigenous-led charitable organization, we prioritize financial decision-making by and for Indigenous people. As a result, the bulk of our funding goes directly to communities to support their work, with very little funding spent on overhead or administration.
