Support for the cultures, languages, and life-ways of nature-based, tribal peoples.
Onaway is a UK grant making charity providing support to tradition-based indigenous peoples.
Onaway invests in small, appropriate projects that make a positive difference to the world’s few remaining Indigenous peoples who are exemplars of how the Earth’s resources, sustainability, and cultural diversity can be maintained.
Onaway helps to raise awareness of the rights of Indigenous peoples.
Support for alternative cultures and a world that works for everyone.
Onaway, founded in 1974, in response to the reawakening of cultural identity amongst Native American peoples, has supported traditional indigenous groups in maintaining their natural worldviews and lifestyles for over four decades.
In contrast to global consumerism, Onaway believes that other valid worldviews are possible, and that there is much to learn from the diminishing tribes of natural people, if only we allow the space and time to listen.
By providing seed grants to natural peoples projects, Onaway strives to keep alive ancient knowledge and wisdom that would otherwise be lost - and may be vital to humankind in the future of this planet.
