Deadline: Preproposal submission window: August 1st - September 30, 2012
Description: The Christensen Fund's strategy in the southwestern U.S. and northern Mexico supports innovative Indigenous and local communities of farmers and pastoralists, ranchers and fishers and their allies to strengthen and celebrate local food systems connected to biodiverse land and seascapes. Their grants help  to foster  learning networks around biocultural diversity across landscapes and  enable frontline local community associations to catalyze change and safeguard indigenous rights to food, health, and homelands. They welcome creative artistic ways to highlight the voices of Indigenous and local communities and reframe debates around land and seascapes, foodways and cultural identity.
