Who We Are
The 4 Directions Healing Foundation is a Native American charitable and educational (501c3) organization made up primarily of American Indian people with diverse tribal backgrounds. We are based out of Chillicothe, Illinois.
We have done charitable work with different Native communities, and strive to help our Native brothers and sisters in the most meaningful ways we can.
The 4 Directions Healing Foundation does Native American cultural programs in Central Illinois (especially the Peoria, IL area) and in other locations serving as a vital and authentic source of Native American culture and traditions to the public. Through our Native American events and cultural programs, we have addressed stereotypes about our people and traditions, left audiences with a newfound understanding and respect for Native American traditions, and given different Native American people a platform to tell their story.
If you care about Native American people and culture, we invite you to join us in this most special effort to work for the good of our people.
