Paige West and her long-time collaborator from Papa New Guinea, John Aini, received two major grants in support of their project "Deepening socio-spiritual and socio-ecological practice in Papua New Guinea." These grants allow them to continue to work with 23 Indigenous communities in New Ireland. The two foundations who provided these funds wish to remain anonymous. West and Aini have also received a grant from the Azimuth World Foundation for their project "Lovangai Island Green Belt" which supports their work with twelve villages on Lovangai Island to map their sea and land rights for a court case focused on indigenous sovereignty.
