Language and Learning Resource for Non-Indigenous People

Language matters; the words we use carry power.

This resource from Native Americans in Philanthropy is a resource for those who wish to expand their understanding of Indigenous communities and how they intersect with the philanthropic sector. This is not a one-size-fits-all guide to working with Indigenous Peoples, Tribal Nations, or Indigenous-led organizations. Please treat it as an entry point, not a checkbox. The terms listed in this resource are a starting point to a longer educational journey, especially since language evolves over time. Familiarizing yourself with the terms, language, and concepts in this resource before engaging with Indigenous communities or organizations is the first step.
