Improving American Indian economic conditions in support of healthy Native communities.
Supporting healthy Native communities
First Nations Development Institute has helped to strengthen American Indian economies and support healthy Native communities since its inception in 1980.
First Nations, with the support of individual, foundation, corporate, and tribal donors, strives to improve economic conditions for Native Americans through technical assistance and training, advocacy and policy, and direct financial grants.
Its core values and guiding principles are focused on serving Native communities, empowering people, advancing innovative program strategies, and nurturing trust and responsibility.
As part of this work, First Nations recognizes that the health of Native communities begins with access to nutritious food. The organization helps build up Native agriculture and sustainable food systems, keeping children and families healthy.
