ICT's short series called Indigenous in 2024 asks changemakers of today about their reflections, observations and hopes. Justin Huenemann is the new president and CEO of First People's Fund.

News about climate change can sometimes seem bleak, but don't say that to Talia Davis. The mentor at the Native Youth Climate Adaptation and Leadership Conference tells ICT's Stewart Huntington she feels optimistic.

There are nine organizations in Minnesota that heard good news last month from MacKenzie Scott's Yield Giving project, as well as 361 organizations nationwide. ICT's Shirley Sneve visited one of those nonprofits to learn about its success. Madeline Johnson is its communications coordinator.
