Native Spirit Foundation is a non-profit, Volunteer-run organisation founded by Mapuche leader Freddy Treuquil to bring knowledge and awareness of Native cultures, and longer-term Community educational projects supporting Escuela Nueva.

“All the [activists] have come to the conclusion that one objective of making video, radio and television is for the other culture to know us. It is necessary to create a bridge to share our culture in an educational form, without losing our identity.” Freddy Treuquil.

Native Spirit Festival is the UK’s first and only Independent annual festival of films, talks and performances celebrating Native cultural heritage, showcasing Indigenous Cinema, MediaMakers and Artists. Native Spirit collaborates with Outreach events throughout the year and supports 13 Moons screenings in partnership with SOAS Native Spirit Film Society.
