Supporting Indigenous Changemakers & Nations

How can we help you?

Native Governance Center is a Native-led nonprofit dedicated to assisting Native nations in strengthening their governance systems and capacity to exercise sovereignty.

Our Programs

Leadership Development

We provide leadership development training for Indigenous changemakers through our Native Nation Rebuilders program.

Tribal Governance Support

We engage elected Tribal leaders, administrators, and citizens in strengthening their Tribal governance systems.

Community Engagement

We bring mission-driven, accessible, educational content to the broader community.

Our Impact

In 2020, we expanded our impact through community engagement events, tribal governance assistance, and leadership development. Here’s a sample of what we accomplished:


People educated through community engagement events


Tribal citizens reached through facilitated election candidate forums


Changemakers received transformative leadership content as Native Nation Rebuilders
