Presented by Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees
Historically misrepresented, under-identified, and under-counted within the Latinidad monolith, indigenous migrants have struggled to be recognized for their distinct cultures, languages, and needs. Where do indigenous migrants live in the United States? How diverse is the indigenous diaspora? How are indigenous migrant leaders seeking justice with respect to language access? Join indigenous migrant leaders, GCIR, and Four Freedoms Fund to explore these questions and learn about the findings from a groundbreaking mapping project, and to reflect on how funders can address ongoing needs and properly visibilize this diverse population.
