The ManKind Project USA holds with deep humility our relationship with indigenous people across the United States and beyond. As one region among regions, we recognize that the contributions of indigenous cultures enrich the sacredness of our work. In the spirit of connection, and looking to the future, we believe these connections to be essential to our evolution.

Building on the ManKind Project USA relationship with the Indigenous Men and Women’s Oyate on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, the Board of Directors of MKP USA has unanimously adopted a proposal to increase access to MKP’s work for a broader population of indigenous people in the USA.

The full content of the proposal is available here.

“In the spirit of giveaway and gratitude for the ways in which MKP USA has benefited from its relationship with indigenous people and to welcome more indigenous men to NWTAs, Support Services believes it appropriate to extend a waiver of the regional portion of the NWTA participant and staffing fees to all indigenous men living within the borders of a sovereign tribal nation in the United States or the equivalent in other Regions when attending MKP USA NWTA events.”

In honor of all our relations,

José Antonio Mondelo
MKP USA Board Chairman
