"When we let money become more important than life. When you let money become more important then relationships. When you let money become more important than humanity - therein is the evil." – Edgar Villanueva

What if we could use wealth to heal rather than cause further harm? What if money was spent trying out concepts that shatter current structures and systems that have turned much of the world into one vast market?

This is the core argument explored by author and nationally-recognized philanthropy expert Edgar Villanueva in his new book Decolonizing Wealth: Indigenous Wisdom to Heal Divides and Restore Balance. Using his own personal experiences as a Native American grantmaker and foundation executive—along with field data and dozens of funder interviews—Villanueva reveals the racial and colonialist dynamics at play in philanthropy and finance, including banks, investment funds, and aid organizations.
