A responsive and effective government is essential to achieve significant, sustainable solutions to a nation’s challenges. We promote and support efforts by the tribal governments of the 23 Native nations we serve to strengthen their governance and advance the aspirations of their people.
The goal of our Native Nation Building initiative is to support tribal governance models in our region that will inspire nations around the world working to exercise self-determination for the good of their people. To that end we make a handful of big investments each year to promote, strengthen and support tribal governance.
We also offer Ecosystem grants which provide general operating support to organizations that help create an environment for our efforts to be successful.
