The Hopi Foundation exemplifies the Hopi teaching of "Itam naapyani" or doing the work ourselves. Established by local Hopis, we promote self sufficiency, proactive community participation in our own destiny, self reliance and local self determination.

Our programs include creating future leaders, providing art therapy workshops for victims of trauma, torture and traumatic dislocation, as well as developing innovative sustainable strategies to address diet-related health issues, preserve Hopi farming traditions, and restore the local food system.
