Heal the Womxn, Heal the World.

As an intermediary, we support Indigenous Womxn to overcome systemic barriers and bring holistic healing and social justice to their communities and beyond.

Who We Are

Return to the Heart Foundation is cultivating a world where Indigenous Womxn and Girls are valued, protected, and supported – and where Mother Earth thrives for future generations.

By investing in Native Womxn and Girls, we champion gender justice and pave the way for a thriving Mother Earth for future generations.

We are rooted in our communities, standing alongside the healers deeply connected to their tribes. 

We're at the forefront of empowering Indigenous Womxn and Girls in the USA.
