There are silent struggles all around– will you listen?

Dear reader,

Mikwanedun Audisookon Center, a new center for art and wellness, is the culmination of the vision and work of Indigenous Peoples Task Force’s Executive Director Sharon M. Day.

As Sharon approaches her 70th birthday on October 3rd, we ask that you will join us in celebrating her remarkable vision by making a gift towards this building project. We are completing the financial paperwork this fall, a builder is selected, and we are breaking ground in the spring. Due to factors out of our control, building costs for wood and HVAC have increased dramatically and we are still looking for some funders to help fill the gap. Your gift will help this project start strong.

“Mik-wane-dun Aud-i-soo-kon” means “remember our teachings” in Ojibwe. Our new center will be an urban sanctuary where body, mind, and spirit can become whole through time-honored indigenous culture and practice.

At 12,350 sq. ft. the center will provide the office, activity and community space IPTF needs to efficiently integrate its health and environmental education, art and theater opportunities, case management services, and housing and traditional healing activities for Native youth and adults. The new facility will both bring all of IPTF’s programming under one roof and give them room to expand.

Though IPTF programs are based in Native values and ways of knowing, they are open to youth and adults of all backgrounds. Mikwanedun Audisookon Center will provide safe space where anyone can restore and renew their relationship with each other and the environment.

Our goal is to raise $7,000 in honor of Sharon’s 70th birthday. Can you give a gift of $70 ….or $700?

Chi Migwetch for your support.
