Native Hope exists to address the injustice done to Native Americans.



Share a backpack full of basic essentials with Native Americans in need.

As one community member once described how it feels to live in poverty, "Just like a building—I’m not going to worry about anything beyond my basic needs—if the foundation is NOT stable, why worry about anything above it?"

Our Back to Basics program fills backpacks with much needed supplies and works with tribal communities to help distribute them, based on their need.

Each backpack offers a little help with the basic essentials of everyday life.

But we can't do this without your help. Together, we can provide Native Americans the basic needs they deserve.

The Science Behind the Healing Power of Storytelling

Or, have you ever been in the heart of a crisis, and someone told you a story that gave you hope and opened your eyes to the joy beyond the hurt?

If so, you’re not alone.
