Tiwahe Foundation


Tiwahe creates pathways for American Indian people to reach their own goals, on their own terms, in this critical moment for defining how Native cultures, languages, and ways of being will live and grow in the coming generations.

We do this through our flagship micro-granting program (AIFEP), and through our Oyate Leadership Network (OLN), a network weaving and leadership development program that centers the cultural needs of our Indigenous leaders in Minnesota.

OLN is a source of community healing through culture and language, recognizing that reciprocal, mutualistic relationships and traditional ways of knowing are critical tools for rebuilding pathways of community care.
