To invest in and create innovative institutions and models to strengthen asset control and support economic development for Native Americans

For more than 30 years, using a three-pronged strategy of Educating Grassroots Practitioners, Advocating for Systemic Change, and Capitalizing Indian Communities, First Nations has been working to restore Native American control and culturally-compatible stewardship of the assets they own – be the they land, human potential, cultural heritage or natural resources – and to establish new assets for ensuring the long-term vitality of Native communities. First Nations serves rural and reservation-based Native American communities throughout the United States.

With the support of individuals, foundations, corporate and tribal donors, First Nations Development Institute improves economic conditions for Native Americans through technical assistance & training, advocacy & policy, and direct financial grants in five key areas:

· Financial & Investor Education

· Combating Predatory Lending

· Native American Business & Asset Development

· Strengthening Native American Nonprofits

· Native Foods & Health

From 1994 to 2011, First Nations Development Institute has provided more than $17 million in financial grant support to Native American programs, projects and initiatives.
