Natik (nah-teek) was formerly the International Humanitarian Foundation (IHF). Our name change reflects our recent organizational realignment. Natik means “We sow” in Tzutujil Mayan and “Our house” in Ch’ol and Tzotzil Mayan. Natik highlights our two primary areas of engagement, Guatemala and Chiapas, as well as our support for vibrant community-based organizations through transformative international relationships. Natik’s new mascot is a hummingbird, chosen for its small size, responsiveness, and incessant energy and determination.
On behalf of the board of directors, staff, volunteers, and international partners that make up the Natik family, we thank you for your interest!
