We are pleased to announce that the Owl & Panther Program has acquired its own 501(c)3 status and is now operating independently of The Hopi Foundation. We will continue to partner with and support the wonderful work of the Owl & Panther community.

Please visit their site at www.owlandpanther.org for more information.

The Owl & Panther Project has worked with refugee families resettled in the Tucson area who have been impacted by trauma, torture and traumatic dislocation.  Through expressive arts workshops, visits to cultural venues, and trips into nature, Owl & Panther provides a refuge within a refuge. While the families grapple with their past experiences in tandem with the challenges of living in a very different world, Owl & Panther offers a nurturing community where they feel safe to reclaim their voice and explore ways to share their ideas with the community, and to help others. Owl & Panther’s families have seen their work validated: their words have been published in books and performed in plays, their art displayed in libraries and their digital stories projected as part of an international film festival.
