the onaway trust
support for alternative cultures and a world that works for everyone.
Onaway, founded in 1974, in response to the reawakening of cultural identity amongst Native American peoples, has supported traditional indigenous groups in maintaining their natural worldviews and lifestyles for over four decades.
In contrast to global consumerism, Onaway believes that other valid worldviews are possible, and that there is much to learn from the diminishing tribes of natural people, if only we allow the space and time to listen.
By providing seed grants to natural peoples projects, Onaway strives to keep alive ancient knowledge and wisdom that would otherwise be lost - and may be vital to humankind in the future of this planet.
