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.
- INDIGENOUS PEOPLES DAY CASE STUDY
NACDI is a member of the Building the Field of Community Engagement (BTF) Cohort with 5 other patterns, organized by Nexus Community Partners. This group is having a deep conversation about the role and tools of Community Engagement in all our work. Recently, BTF launched a series of case studies to explore how community engagement work happens on the ground. NACDI was featured in the first case study, highlighting our work to change Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day in the City of Minneapolis.
