Grantee Year: 
Saint Paul

Native Governance Center is a Native American-led nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting Tribal nations in strengthening their governance systems and capacity to exercise sovereignty. The organization was created in August 2015 in response to a need identified by Tribal leaders representing the 23 Native nations sharing geography with Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota. These leaders expressed the need for an organization that would meet the expanding demand for Tribal governance-related resources and sustain this work into the long-term future. Native Governance Center works at the intersection of leadership development and Tribal governance support.
