Reinforce Narrative Change

We Are Still Here Minnesota is aptly named. The state of Minnesota is only one place that requires a serious reconsideration of historical and contemporary narratives surrounding the Native peoples who share its geography. It is our hope that other States answer to the Call to Action to Reclaim Native Truth and add to the growing movement. We will reexamine narratives and amplify authentic Native voices. The journey of these efforts is long, and we are just beginning.

IllumiNative

Created and led by Native peoples, IllumiNative is a new nonprofit initiative designed to increase the visibility of – and challenge the negative narrative about – Native Nations and peoples in American society.

Treaties Matter

We have always been sovereign nations… Today, treaties continue to affirm the inherent sovereignty of American Indian nations. Tribal governments maintain nation-to-nation relationships with the United States government. Tribal nations manage lands, resources, and economies, protect people, and build more secure futures for generations to come.
