The Native Arts and Cultures Foundation is accepting applications from American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian artists for its National Artist Fellowship program, which annually supports Native artists in the categories of traditional arts, music, visual arts, literature and artistic innovation.
Grants will be awarded in recognition of the creativity and expression of exceptional Native artists who have made significant impact in their field. Artists must demonstrate artistic excellence, have made a significant impact in their discipline, earned respect from their colleagues, and achieved recognition in their field.
Eligible applicants are Native artists who are enrolled as a citizen among any of the federally or state recognized Native Nations or Alaska Native Corporations, or who have documentation of Native Hawaiian ancestry and reside in the United State
