The grant, awarded by the Margaret A. Cargill Foundation of Eden Prairie, Minn., will allow First Nations to use its capacity-building expertise within Indian Country, specifically with projects in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

Under the project, First Nations expects to award between 18 and 55 grants ranging from $500 to $30,000 each over the next three years. The grants will help develop the effectiveness and capacity of reservation-based and select non-reservation-based Native museums and cultural centers that support Native arts and artists.
