First Peoples Fund focuses on enhancing the crucial role Native artists can play in supporting economic growth, as well as sustaining the culture, traditions, and well-being of Native peoples. Their support comes in the form of a variety of small grants and fellowship programs made to Native artists, including the Artist in Business Leadership grants, the Community Spirit Awards, and the Cultural Capital grants, as well as training designed for financial and nonprofit professionals and local established artist wishing to work directly with emerging artists wishing to start or grow a business. The Rolling Rez Arts mobile unit, a partnership with The Lakota Fund, provides art classes, professional arts business and entrepreneurship training, asset building, financial education, and mobile banking to artists on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.
