We are looking for an Indigenous person to join our Creative Fellowship!
The Sogorea Te’ Land Trust is offering an opportunity to Indigenous creators for hands-on experience with our media team. Fellows will learn about practices of Rematriation, cultural revitalization, and radical professional environments. STLT Indigenous Fellows will learn about decolonial non profit administration, gain experience with media management, explore career opportunities with Native led projects, and participate in the inner workings of Rematriation! Mentees will have the opportunity to work on a project of their choosing, in service of Sogorea Te’s Media Department.
This is a 3 -month paid fellowship with Sogorea Te’ in the village of Huichin (Oakland, CA). This fellowship is established in a hybrid format, with both remote and in person tasks, but needs & covid-19 protocols can be met on a case by case basis.
