Fighting for the visibility of Native peoples is more vital than ever before. IllumiNative is mobilizing Native peoples, artists, and our allies to #WarriorUp in the fight against Covid-19. Now is the time to fight for the visibility of Native peoples, care for our communities, and ensure Native peoples are seen, heard and included in solutions and conversations about this public health emergency.

Our research shows 78% of Americans know little to nothing about Native peoples, and representation of Native communities in mainstream media is less than 0.04%. These numbers are critical when translated directly to emergency funding during times of crises and historical lack of investment in Indian Country to sustain Native communities through a pandemic. 

In addition to supporting IllumiNative and our fight for visibility, please support other Native-led efforts to provide emergency resources to Tribes and Native communities at this critical time. Native nonprofits and community leaders across the country are organizing important emergency relief efforts to try and provide support and assistance to Native families, Elders, students, artists and businesses impact by the COVID-19 epidemic. To support and learn about these efforts, please click here.


Let’s #WarriorUp against Covid-19.
