Nominations of Northwest Tribal Leaders Invited for Ecotrust 2012 Indigenous Leadership Award
Nominations are open for Ecotrust's eleventh annual Indigenous Leadership Award, which recognizes native leaders dedicated to improving conditions of their homelands in Oregon, Washington, California, western Montana, Nevada, Idaho, Alaska, British Columbia, and the Yukon Territory.
The program's award of $25,000 recognizes an individual who demonstrates durable qualities of leadership for improvement of social, economic, political, and environmental conditions in his or her homelands. In addition, four other honorees will receive a $5,000 cash award. The award may be used for activities in any combination of the following areas: professional development and/or skills enrichment; program or organizational investigation and development; personal research and associated expenses; and traditional activity or ceremonial participation.
Individuals are eligible if they are First Nation or tribal members, over 35 years of age, and work or have worked with an indigenous organization or community within the geographic areas described above. The nomination will have a better chance if the individual has the support of his or her tribes or work organization. The nominee is someone who is working on issues that serve to improve the community's resource base, cultural base, economic security, or health and wellness.
Nomination guidelines and forms are available at the Ecotrust Web site.
