NDN Collective

Dedicated to Building
Indigenous Power

NDN Collective is an Indigenous-led organization dedicated to building Indigenous power. Through organizing, activism, philanthropy, grantmaking, capacity-building and narrative change, we are creating sustainable solutions on Indigenous terms.

Together, we decolonize and transform systems while providing tools and strategies for Indigenous self-determination and movement-building.

Indigenous-led

We are an all-Indigenous team of grassroots organizers, practitioners, community builders, and media-based strategists from diverse Nations throughout Turtle Island.

Our team
Mission-Driven

Our mission is grounded in Indigenous values and democratic principles of organizing. We are committed to creating a world that is more just and equitable for all people and the planet.

Mission and Values
Narrative Change

Storytelling is a central feature of our organizing work. We lift up stories of Indigenous movement-building, we disrupt false narratives, and we produce content to build Indigenous power.
