Subject: A Call to Action

Dear Jennifer;

The next few years present a prime opportunity to advance policies and programs that will help ensure the survival of indigenous cultural institutions in the USA. With funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, ATALM is identifying the structure, activities, and needs of indigenous archives, libraries, museums, cultural centers, and historic preservation offices.  We are also examining ways cultural institutions can support language revitalization projects and Native artists.  An outcome of the project will be an Action Plan that will guide efforts to secure more funding and culturally responsive programs.

Your participation is needed.  If you are the director of a USA-based indigenous cultural institution, please respond to the Needs Assessment Survey<https://atalm.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=1b5fd0b3926b2a0236f0325a1&id=176a7e909c&e=ca34d32c32> that was distributed last week.  If you want to help guide the process, serve on the National Planning Council.<https://atalm.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=1b5fd0b3926b2a0236f0325a1&id=f9c14de00e&e=ca34d32c32>  If you want to actively participate in planning for the future, register to attend one of the seven Summits<https://atalm.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=1b5fd0b3926b2a0236f0325a1&id=847f1f64d4&e=ca34d32c32>.

Positive change does not happen unless we work for it. Can we count on you?

With respect and gratitude,

Walter Echo-Hawk, Chairman of the Board
Susan Feller, President & CEO
Melissa Brodt, Director of Programs
Samonia Byford, Treasurer
Jim Enote, Governing Board
Kevin Gover, Governing Board
Rick West, Governing Board

P.S.  Survey responses are due by Friday, January 8, 2021.  We are hoping for 100% participation.
