Reciprocity for Indigenous Nations
What would it look like if…
thousands of households and small businesses started recognizing Indigenous land and Indigenous rights by saying thank you for where they live and work in a meaningful way?
How Will Reciprocity Work for Indigenous Nations?
We Make a Plan
We’ll work together to confirm if Reciprocity makes sense for your area – regional population and local relationships are big factors. If it makes sense, we’ll make a plan for how Reciprocity Payments will be received by your Nation, and outline your Nation’s goals for how funds will be used (e.g., language, land, or nation re-building) and managed. This is usually through a joint trust that shares benefits between your Nation and other Indigenous Nations in your area.
We Establish a Reciprocity Agreement
A Reciprocity agreement clarifies how funds will be received, managed and distributed over time. It can be reviewed and updated each year. Reciprocity helps track progress based on directions set by the Indigenous governments involved. We also track reciprocity properties and businesses, and coordinate annual reporting to show the difference Reciprocity makes.
We Build a Reciprocity Community
It’s a big job to change the culture of home and the way we think about property ownership on Indigenous land. Reciprocity works with Indigenous Nations, home owners and business owners to build awareness, community, and participation in person, and using web and other media. We want to see reciprocity, and Indigenous language, land and nation-building more visible and more a part of celebrating connections in every community.
