Date grant awarded: April 23, 2016
Kaga:create was founded in 2013 by the organization’s president, Dana Overman. With the belief that when a story is shared, life is shared and when life is shared, people are united. Kaga:create’s mission is to empower Native American youth to tell their story through artistic exploration and expression by seeking and building relationships with artistic mentors on reservations. Providing Native American mentors with capacity to build youth artistic opportunities, Pine Ridge youth will be given a voice through their art and an outlet to be heard.
