Ancient Voices

A Museum to honor the least known people in North America, the Original Tribal Women

Links to Native American Charitable Organizations

In many places in America the indiginous peoples are having a hard time surviving. Their ancestors could hunt for food and find natural resources for heat, their homes were located close together for protection and friendship and elders were cared for by the community. In those days no-one was cold, hungry or lonely. Today however things are completely different the reservations are often so desolate that elders cannot get out to see other people, their homes are cold and they have little food. Work opportunities are almost unheard of.

These proud people have to rely on the goodness of charities to survive. The charities listed below all give a helping hand not a hand out. They believe that it is important to provide help in a way that reduces dependency and at the same time draws on the strong sense of pride and community, prevalent among Indian people.

This website is about women who have done extra-ordinary things under difficult circumstances, they achieved their goals and have done amazing things. If more women are going to do the same thing then the situation on the reservations needs to change for the positive. Donations to the organizations below could assist this change. If you are able to donate something to one of other of them please do. If not please just read about each one and see what they are doing to make the lives of these individuals and communities better.

I thank you for your time.
