*This program is hosted by our partner, Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR), who has extended an invitation to PNY members. Space is limited and will be granted on a first come, first served basis.*
Historically misrepresented, under-identified, and under-counted within the Latinidad monolith, indigenous migrants have struggled to be recognized for their distinct cultures, languages, and needs. Where do indigenous migrants live in the United States? How diverse is the indigenous diaspora? How are indigenous migrant leaders seeking justice with respect to language access?
