Sex trafficking among American Indian girls and women is at crisis levels.

1 in 3 Native American women reports being raped.

Now is the time to invest in hope.

“I joined The Circle of Hope because I read Native Hope's mission and story, and I was moved to help....I have long thought it was an underserved population. Some stories I have read are truly heartbreaking. I can't help as much as I would like to, but I will give what I can. Everyone can make a difference."

Chrissy F., San Diego, CA, monthly donor

When you join The Circle of Hope, you invest in the future. We won't stop working until every Native American child has a real opportunity to grow up full of hope and to follow their dreams.

Rappin' the Rez with Hope!

All of us at Native Hope, in collaboration with community partners, are excited to host Frank Waln, an award-winning Sicangu Lakota Hip Hop artist and music producer from the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota. On October 9, Native American Day, this event will bring the Hunkpati Oyate (Crow Creek Sioux Tribe) and Kul Wicasa (Lower Brule Sioux Tribe) together for this powerful message of hope. We invite you to join us in making this event possible!

Our Leaders’ Society is a group of young Native Americans who are inspired to have unique conversations and make an impact in their community.
