First Nations Development Institute is a national, nonprofit, Native American organization whose mission is to strengthen American Indian economies to support healthy Native communities. We believe that only solutions designed by Native peoples, for Native peoples, through the control of their assets and based on their cultural values, will succeed. Our strategies are to: *Educate Grassroots Practitioners through training, technical assistance, and peer learning. *Advocate For Systemic Change by building power in Native communities and affirming tribes' peer-to-peer status with the federal government. *Capitalize Indian Communities through grants to tribes and Native groups to ensure that Native people receive physical, environmental, socioeconomic, and cultural benefits. First Nations' board is 100% Native American and our staff is majority Native.
