The Native Nation Rebuilders Program brings together Native leaders so they may be instrumental in moving their nations, in cooperation with their elected leadership, toward realization of their tribes’ unique goals.
“Going through the Rebuilders program did wonders for me. I had a totally different outlook on my tribe. It just opened my eyes to so many different things about what other tribes are doing and some of the successes that they’re having. When you get out of your day-to-day work, and you go through these sessions with the Rebuilders program, it’s reviving. It re-energizes you.” -LeRoy Staples Fairbanks III, Tribal Councilman, Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe
We seek candidates for a seventh cohort of Rebuilders who will help ensure that elected tribal leaders and the tribes they serve will have a cadre of skilled and courageous individuals dedicated to strengthening their nations.
