Mikwanedun Audisookon

Help us Build A Center for Art and Wellness

Mikwanedun Audisookon means "remember our teachings" in Ojibwe. The new Center will allow IPTF to bring all its art and wellness programs under one roof, expand its nutrition and youth theatre programs, and create new opportunities for Native youth in the arts and green economy. It will give us greater capacity to continue the healing traditions that have been passed down through the generations, providing an urban sanctuary where body, mind, and spirit can become whole through time-honored indigenous culture and practice. This will not just be a building created of bricks and mortar, but a community gathering place built from dreams and inspiration.

We are over halfway to our goal of raising $5 million for our new building, including over $500,000 in individual donations. Momentum is growing. Your gift will help make this dream a reality.

Indigi Baby Food


Food is the center of our culture we eat according to the seasons & the land.

Native foods are nutrient dense and have many health benefits. By increasing access to and availability of healthy baby food made from traditional indigenous foods we aim to address the high rates of obesity that disproportionately affect indigenous children in Minnesota. We have been developing Indigi Baby Food and sampling it at health fairs. We will have it on the shelves by next summer.
We have a $750 matching grant for donations made to Indigenous Peoples Task Force this Give to the Max Day. Please help us reach our goal and schedule your gift today. Migwetch!
