We are Native Americans living and working in the Bismarck Metro area. We are respected and appreciated. We have prosperous, healthy families and are proud of our Native American heritage. We are respected political and civic leaders. We are well-known for our athleticism and healthy lifestyles. Our languages and lifestyles link current generations to the ancient indigenous people who live in harmony with the earth. We are courageous people telling the truth about a history of conflict, yet willing to forgive and to reconcile with brothers and sisters. We are welcoming people, sharing with those new to the community and those who cannot meet their basic needs. We are respectful and generous, and we stand in solidarity with those who seek to improve their lives. Native, Inc. helps transform those who feel helpless despair into strong people full of hope.
Ceremonies and tribal languages are still a significant way of life to tribal people and their communities, as tribal people, we are responsible for sharing this knowledge to our future generations so that our culture and language may thrive.

OUR WORK IN ACTION
Volunteers are the backbone of our community.
Meet Nigel, one of our volunteers.
Nigel Eagle Pipe is a Sicangu from Rosebud, South Dakota, now living in Bismarck. Nigel offered to volunteer his time at the Native American Development Center (NADC). Mrs. Davis, CEO of NATIVE, Inc. and NADC, says “Nigel is a natural leader whether he is offering to help pull weeds, stack chairs, wipe off tables and chairs or serve on planning committees, Nigel knows that he is contributing to the big picture of “helping the people." We are very glad to have him become a part of our efforts to create a home and sense of belonging for our Native American community in the Bismarck metropolitan area.”
