This is a good day to open your heart and give!
Dear Friends, 
We are calling for generous support of the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band, the descendents of those taken to Mission Santa Cruz and Mission San Juan Bautista. They are the indigenous people who have stewarded  this land for over 15,000 years.   

Due to historic disenfranchisement and marginalization, the pandemic is having a disproportionately greater impact on tribal members. This includes heightened costs of Covid care, loss of work, difficulty  paying rent, and a threat to food security.  

As a community, we can contribute in a meaningful way to Amah Mutsun Tribal Band members’ well being. We are a partnership of local, like-minded organizations acknowledging historical and current settler atrocities to open a conversation towards mutual healing. 

Help spread the word by asking your friends and social  groups to give today. Consider donating your extra stimulus funds. 

The call is pressing. The benefit is great.
Help meet the goal! 

Funds will be used for medical care and supplies, food, personal protective equipment (PPE), elder care, transportation, school-related supplies such as technology for distance learning, and rent assistance to  support tribal members’ ability to stay in their homes.  

The Humunya Tribal Foundation of the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band oversees the execution of these funds and is a 501 (c) (3) Private Foundation. Your contributions to the fundraiser are tax deductible.
