Native Arts and Cultures Foundation - Center for Native Arts and Cultures
Portland, United States

The Native Arts and Cultures Foundation advances equity and cultural knowledge, focusing on the power of arts and collaboration to strengthen Native communities and promote positive social change with American Indian, Native Hawaiian, and Alaska Native peoples in the United States.

On February 26th, 2021 NACF received the gift of the Yale Union Laundry building in Portland, Oregon. The historic building will become the new headquarters for NACF and has been renamed the Center for Native Arts and Cultures. We are deeply grateful to the board and staff of previous owner YU and late Executive Director Yoko Ott for their vision and courage in affording this transformative opportunity to NACF.

Our vision for the Center includes spaces for exhibitions, events, places to practice culture and make art, and areas for cultural ceremonies and celebrations to create a vibrant gathering place for Indigenous artists. We look forward to more opportunities for broad community learning, including workshops and seminars covering pertinent issues relative to decolonizing space, anti-racism, and environmental justice at the Center.
