We acknowledge that we are situated on the unceded and ancestral homelands of the Muh-he-con-ne-ok, the Peoples of the Waters that Are Never Still.

We recognize that there is a history to this land that is older than we are and pay honor and respect to this history and to the Elders, past, present, and future.



Forge Project is humbled and honored to work adjacently to so many exceptional organizations working to serve their communities. Forge is able to support these organizations through an alliance with the Gochman Family Foundation, which issues grants, and through offering the use of the Forge Project premises for programing, day retreats, and fundraising events. In addition to on-site and capital support, Forge Education Director, Heather Bruegl is available to lecture to local groups on a broad range of subjects related to Native American history, de-colonizing language and current issues affecting Indigenous people.
