California Truth and Healing Fund

Powered by Liberated Capital, a fund of Decolonizing Wealth

Decolonizing Wealth Project is an Indigenous-led racial justice organization that envisions a world where racial equity has become a societal norm – where new systems ensure everyone can live their best lives, thrive in their cultures, and heal from generations of colonial trauma. Decolonizing Wealth Project (DWP) was established in 2018 to disrupt the existing systems of moving and controlling capital by offering truth, reconciliation, and healing from the ails of colonization through education, radical reparative giving, and narrative change.
The California Truth & Healing Council (the “Council” or “CTHC”), created by Executive Order N-15-19, bears witness to, records, examines existing documentation of, and receives California Native American narratives regarding the historical relationship between the State of California and California Native Americans in order to clarify the historical record of such relationship in the spirit of truth and healing. The Council’s mission is facilitated by the Governor’s Tribal Advisor and includes representatives from California Native American tribes, relevant state and local agencies, and other relevant non-governmental stakeholders.
We believe that CA Native people have an unprecedented opportunity to leverage this political moment to advance healing for tribal communities across California. In order for the process to be maximized, CA tribes and Native-led organizations need resources to be engaged in the state’s process – to both inform and shape it and to hold the government accountable to its promises to Native people.
To this end, Liberated Capital, a fund of Decolonizing Wealth Project, launched a multi-year grantmaking initiative, the California Truth and Healing Fund, to support the engagement of California Native American families, communities, tribes, and organizations to engage in the work of truth and healing. This includes opportunities presented by the Truth and Healing Council process and beyond.
In an effort to create transparency and role clarity, we’d like to share that the CA Truth and Healing Fund operates independently of the State of California. Its work is grounded in the mission of the Decolonizing Wealth Project, a global non-profit organization. Funding decisions will be guided by an advisory board of California Native Americans.
