Sacred Fire Foundation supports the continuance of indigenous wisdom and strives to raise awareness about the values of the indigenous worldview as a way to effect social change and transform the world in which we live.
Indigenous peoples hold the moral reserve of the world.

Protecting the Sacred
Through a strong participatory partnership model, our Grant Program works with Indigenous communities worldwide to ensure that their ancestral wisdom can continue to flourish for generations to come.
Honoring Indigenous Elders
Indigenous elders are keepers of the wisdom that our ancestors cultivated through the ages. We honor and support them through our Wisdom Fellowship Award.
Through our Events and Media Program we provide opportunities for people to experience indigenous wisdom and learn how to apply these values in their daily life.
Connect with Ancestral Wisdom
Our premier event, Ancient Wisdom Rising, is being restructured. Voices of Wisdom gatherings provide opportunities to listen and learn from indigenous elders in an intimate ritual setting.
