Legal Name: Seventh Generation Fund for Indigenous Peoples

The Seventh Generation Fund for Indigenous Peoples is dedicated to promoting Indigenous Peoples' self-determination and the sovereignty of Native nations. Our organization derives its name from a precept of the Great Law of Peace of the Haudenosaunee (Six Nations Iroquois Confederacy) which mandates that chiefs consider the impact of their decisions on the seventh generation yet to come. This principle guides us in our frontline work with the grassroots Native communities we support in revitalization, restoration, preservation, planning and development projects. Our work has consistently been based on traditional Native concepts of holistic ecological stewardship. Seventh Generation Fund and the communities we serve have long understood the direct relationships between a healthy environment, social justice and community well-being. We remain focused on supporting grassroots development through Native community empowerment and action. Seventh Generation Fund has grown and evolved into the foremost Indigenous non-profit/social-profit organization in the United States.
