We are Hope Nation, LLC. We believe all Native Nations have a common value that not only sustained their existence through historical atrocities, but has increased self-determination and strengthened their sovereignty - it is hope. With a combined 47 years of academic leadership and community development experience we want to assist Indigenous and rural communities with the process of turning their hope into powerful, positive change.
Guided by true compassion.
