A future that will blossom with the help of the Native Governance Center.

Values, history, and identity guide the leadership structure of successful native nations. The Grand Portage Tribal Council and others gained new skills and expanded their capacity to chart the future in 2022 through workshops led by the Native Governance Center. Successful native nations spark positive ripple effects in the communities around them.

The Native Governance Workshops were supported in part by a grant from the Community Opportunity Fund of the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation. The work was honored at the 2022 Touchstone Celebration.
