Oyate Network

Tiwahe envisions a collaborative approach for American Indian leadership across urban, tribal and rural communities that moves from isolation to transformation, action and social change; The Oyate network. The Oyate Network provides Native leaders across Minnesota the opportunity to connect to others through the Oyate Leadership Network, an online platform and selected cohorts. Our collective values and community work can strengthen through collaborative connections within this network. Selected cohort leaders in the Network have the opportunity to fund community projects through the Oyate Network Community Project Grants.
