OUR WORK

Our healing begins with storytelling.
And that’s why we tell stories.

Why We Work

We believe in the power of storytelling to dismantle barriers, bring healing, and inspire hope for Native people. Why? Because telling stories of Native struggle and Native strength is a powerful catalyst for unity, generational healing, and personal growth. Each of us has an evolving story which no one else can write. We believe that healing for Native people starts with a vulnerable recounting of where one has been, where one is today, and where one wants to be tomorrow. That’s why we tell stories. And that’s why we need your support!

Leaders’ Society

The Leaders' Society is a group of Native Hope team members who dedicate 5 hours a week to partner with like-minded organizations serving the needs of the most vulnerable in Indian Country. These partnerships help to empower youth on and off reservations, inspiring the next generation to have a voice, take positive action and become strong leaders for their tribes. This powerful on-the-ground work allows many important stories an opportunity to be heard.

Ambassador Program

Our ambassadors are a group of Native and Non-Native Americans who are dedicated to helping Native people heal through the power of storytelling. They are determined to change the perception of Native Americans by educating about Native issues while helping others find a way to be a part of today’s society—still keeping their Native American heritage alive.

If you are interested in one of our ambassadors speaking at your school, conference, forum, or other event, please contact us.
