Welcome To NACDI
We will see more changes in the next 25 years than we have experienced over the past 100. To thrive in the midst of this global change, the American Indian community must be unified and agile, work in partnership, eliminate deficit-driven methods, and invest in comprehensive asset-based strategies.
NACDI is committed to transforming the American Indian community to effectively respond to 21st century opportunities. NACDI works to promote innovative community development strategies that strengthen the overall sustainability and well-being of American Indian people and communities.
- SHORE VISIONING SESSION
Join us Monday, February 24th from 6:00-7:30 PM at All My Relations Gallery for the second in a series of visioning sessions focused on how you and your community can connect to SHORE.
Emily Johnson is a choreographere of Yup'id descent who has lived in Minneapolis for 20 years. She creates dances and performance with her company, Catalyst. SHORE is their new work. Catalyst and NACDI are partnering on the volunteering aspects of SHORE.
SHORE is a multi-day performance installation of dance, story, volunteerism, and feasting. It is a celebration of the places where we meet and merge - land and water, performer and audience, art and community, past, present, and future.
Join us to envision a volunteer community project that can be part of SHORE. What do you want for your neighborhood? Your community? Your park? What can we do together?
