The North Sound Indigenous Futurity Alliance is an intersectional, welcoming, and fun group dedicated to supporting young Indigenous leaders in the North Sound region.
We intentionally listen to, and lift up voices from communities that have been historically silenced, marginalized, and excluded. We provide a safe space to be in community.
North Sound Indigenous Futurity Alliance - Land Acknowledgement
The North Sound Indigenous Futurity Alliance is a collaborative effort of our members, including representatives of North Sound Accountable Community of Health, Communities of Color Coalition (C3), Community Initiatives Network, and Children of the Setting Sun Productions, as well as our members at large. Our membership is spread wide across Turtle Island; we encourage you to learn whose Indigenous territory you live on and to respect and honor Indigenous peoples and communities. Click here to learn more about the collaborative effort to acknowledge Indigenous lands around the world, and to find resources that can help you be in touch with the Indigenous peoples on whose territory you inhabit. If you would like further information about the Alliance, or to join our Alliance mailing list, please email IndigenousFuturity@NorthSoundACH.org.
