Rebuilders Program


The Native Governance Center has assumed full responsibility to carry forth the work of the Native Nation Rebuilders, a leadership development program established by the Bush Foundation in 2009. As of today, over 100 tribal citizens from all across the region have graduated from the Native Nations Rebuilders and have gone on to support nation-building projects within their communities.
