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 2021, we expanded our impact through community engagement events, Tribal governance support, and leadership development. Here’s a sample of what we accomplished:


Attendees gained knowledge through community engagement events


Tribal leaders, staff, and community members contributed feedback to our Native nations listening tour


Participation hours for 31 changemakers learning transformative leadership skills, adding to our network of over 200 Native Nation Rebuilders
