The Allies of Native Nations
The Allies of Native Nations is a group of Rock County, Wisconsin residents who are interested in creating a platform from which they can help to illuminate issues in the Native community and provide a safe space in which Natives and non-Natives discuss those issues.
The Allies of Native Nations will also work with other community organizations to help provide educational opportunities. We are all here because we are Allies of Native Nations and want to make a difference in our community. We allow each other to share their voice by speaking and listening thoughtfully. We consider the desired group message, and organize ourselves in a roundtable format with “champions” for projects. Each voice is coupled with responsibility.
Allies of Native Nations is a welcoming network of advocates for Native Nations and an educational resource for our community.
Organization Value Statements:
- We honor Native Nations with respect and integrity.
- We envision a future of reconciliation through enhanced understanding of Native cultures and history.
- We have the courage to learn from and share diverse experiences.
- We are accountable for communicating accurate information that integrates Native perspectives.
Allies of Native Nations illuminates Native issues by partnering with Native Nations to create a safe space for educational opportunities in our community.
