Shifting Power in Tribal Communities To Advance Economic Mobility

Location: City View 6 (4th Floor, Hotel)


To support Indigenous youth and family success while honoring tribal sovereignty, communities must focus on shifting power. Power-shifting practices should empower community members to lead, and national intermediaries should be working directly with place-based partnerships.

Session participants will learn key lessons from national, community, and Indigenous perspectives — from best practices that school districts and CBOs have taken to respect tribal sovereignty, to creating environments that are more welcoming and respectful of Indigenous culture and tradition. You’ll also learn about grantmaking that explores ideas leading to the common goal of advancing economic mobility. And, you’ll better understand how to create actionable and respectful land acknowledgements and build a shared community vision.
