2014 NACF Artist Fellowships
by press release

Each year, the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation awards NACF Artist Fellowships to honor American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian artists making a significant impact in their discipline and who have the potential to be or already are powerful voices in the arts.

From a national call for entries, peer panels select the year's top entries in the disciplines of Dance, Film, Literature, Music, Traditional and Visual Arts.
