The Tiwahe Foundation operates as a transparent, self-sustaining and strategic organization.

About this strategic plan

In September 2023, Tiwahe Foundation’s board of directors and wisdom council convened a full day planning retreat at the Minnesota Humanities Center. The retreat and development of this plan was facilitated by Dr. Nicole MartinRogers (White Earth Nation descendant), who is an independent consultant and former Tiwahe board member.

After the retreat, Nicole worked with Tiwahe Foundation staff to refine the strategic priorities and to develop an action plan to implement the strategies. We are developing an evaluation plan that includes key performance indicators that measure our progress on implementing this plan.

We would like to thank all Tiwahe Foundation staff, board members, wisdom council members, and community members who helped shape this plan, and who will be a part of doing the hard work to make our plans turn into our reality.
