Supporting Indigenous Changemakers

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.

Tribal Finance

We support Native nations in building their financial leadership and capacity.

Our Impact

In 2022, we expanded our impact through Tribal governance support, community engagement resources, and leadership development, among other focus areas. Here’s a sample of what we accomplished:


Tribal leaders & staff from three Native nations received training on nation rebuilding, sovereignty, and governance through our Indigenous Leaders in Governance program.


Unique pageviews on our educational videos, guides, and other resources designed for the community


Participation hours for 17 changemakers learning transformative leadership skills, adding to our network of over 200 Native Nation Rebuilders
