What is Native nation rebuilding?

The Native nation rebuilding framework helps Native nations thrive. In this video, we explain the framework and how to put it into action.

You’ve probably noticed that some Native nations are more successful than others. But, have you ever stopped to truly consider why?

In this video, we explain the Native nation rebuilding framework, which provides guidance for both internal governance and external relationships through five interconnected principles. Rebuilding can help Native nations thrive on their own terms.

The rebuilding framework honors the fact that Native people and nations already have the tools they need to succeed. It simply puts these tools into a common language. At its core, rebuilding is about using Indigenous knowledge and values to solve modern-day problems in a way that makes sense to the nation.
