About the Alliance for Felix Cove

The Alliance for Felix Cove (A4FC) is an Indigenous-women-led grassroots organization that works for the purpose to protect, restore and re-matriate the Felix Family Coast Miwok/Támal-ko ancestral home at Point Reyes National Seashore. The Alliance is an emergent organization and building organizational capacity to carry out advocacy to re-matriate Indigenous ancestral lands, shift the narrative from colonial settler history to center Indigenous history and science, and to build and engage community.  We envision Felix Cove as an Indigenous site of resiliency embodying history, culture, ecological science, justice and community.

The Alliance for Felix Cove is built on an ecosystem of Indigenous principles of respect, generosity, reciprocity, responsibility, relationship and gratitude. We follow our principles to ensure we prevent internal and lateral oppression. We are creating a place of justice that recognizes and removes the historical barriers experienced by Támal-ko people to living on and accessing ancestral homelands—now a national park. We expand upon this notion of justice to be inclusive of all people, with an emphasis on people of color for whom national parks can represent a place of exclusion. We share our programs and resources to ensure equity is modeled and achieved. We welcome diversity and celebrate the unique experiences and stories that each individual brings to our circle. Our work is to call out and dismantle systems of oppression that deny individuals and communities justice, equity, diversity and inclusion.

Position Overview

The A4FC is seeking a highly organized and proactive individual to join our small non-profit organization as a Cultural Pathways Manager in consultation and reporting to the Founder/Executive Director (ED). This role is responsible for the direction and implementation of cultural public programming, interpretive and experience initiatives, and educational activities that will hold the vision and integrity of our purpose and vision.

  • Are comfortable with liberatory and de-colonizing language and concepts related to Indigenous, social, racial and environmental justice
  • Center California Indigenous people, history and ecological knowledge
  • Enjoy working with a team of Alliance staff and consultants (e.g., operations, communication and education)
  • Show initiative and follow-through, are a good listener, highly organized, and flexible managing complexity with grace
