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.

NDN Collective Announces Community Action Fund Grant Partners Posted 1 month ago
“NDN Collective is honored to invest in the self-determination and leadership of these organizations, collectives, organizers, and cultural practitioners.

NDN Collective Shares Program Intention of Collective Abundance Fund Ahead of Official Launch Posted 1 month ago
“While this financial commitment is unprecedented and significant, funding alone won’t solve the racial equity gap. Movement building must continue. Policy and advocacy work must continue to disrupt, dismantle, and shift the economic systems that don’t work for us. We can all play a part in that.”
NDN Collective anuncia a sus beneficiarios de Libre Determinación Comunitaria Posted 2 months ago
"Esta generación de socios beneficiarios representa algunos de los trabajos más impactantes que ocurren en la Isla de la Tortuga: defender el aire, la tierra y el agua; desarrollar economías indígenas basadas en principios regenerativos; y revitalizar nuestros idiomas, culturas y ceremonias de manera que iluminen el camino para las próximas generaciones"
All Charges Dismissed Against Nick Tilsen in 2.5 Year Long Case Posted 2 months ago
“My case held a mirror up to the so-called legal system, where prosecutors – fueled by white fragility and fear of Indigenous power – wasted years of state resources to intimidate, criminalize, and violate me. The fact that I’ve gone from facing 17 years in prison to all charges dismissed is not a coincidence or an act of justice – it’s evidence that the charges were bogus from the start."

United like never before, we rise together — arm-in-arm — to equip all Indigenous Peoples with the tools needed to become architects of our future. Through a holistic approach to infrastructure, funding, advocacy, movement building, and philanthropy we are fostering a world of justice and equity for all people and the planet.
