Native leaders across Minnesota have the opportunity to connect to others through the Oyate Leadership Network. Our collective values and community work can strengthen through collaborative connections within this network. Find support, access resources, and collaborate with Native leaders for your own work.

The Goals of the Oyate Network:

  • Support leaders through experiential learning, peer sharing, and networking grounded in culture.
  • Connect leaders across the state using technology and face-to-face strategies.
  • Foster sustainability by building relationships, increasing cultural practice, 
    and nurturing a circle of mutual support.
  • Engage in leadership activities in tribal communities that lead toward equity and a greater social and economic stability. 


Members are welcome to utilize this space to work, connect, collaborate, inform, and relate to your peer Native leaders in the state of Minnesota.
