Sengi'di (Hello in Tewa)

Exciting changes on the horizon! Currently working on updating our website to bring you current news and information about the Leadership Institute and our native communities.


Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors we're recruiting for the Summer Policy Academy!
See flyer below for details!



With the 2020 Legislative session coming to an end, we have been inspired by everyone during this time. We know change does not happen over night and our Native voice is being heard across the State. 

Here is an article to share with everyone to keep the momentum going.

"I dedicate this to all the indigenous kids in the world, who want to do art and dance and write stories. We are the original storytellers, and we can make it here, as well."

The planning team for the Joe Sando Symposium is still looking for folks that would like to put a panel together or to be a part of a panel. Some of the areas needed include: 

  • Global Climate Change
  • Education
  • and a panel of folks implementing innovative programs in the Pueblos 

Please contact Nicole Lovato at if you are interested!  






The Leadership Institute creates and provides intentional opportunities where native people convene to develop innovative solutions based on pueblo cultural values.
