Charity Talks

First Nations Development Institute

February 25, 2021

Michael Roberts, the President and CEO of First Nations Development Institute, is this episode's guest.  Native American tribes have been marginalized for over 400 years, and as Michael discusses, philanthropy and funding provided to American Indians to address this is a small and disproportionate fraction of that distributed throughout the country.  First Nations is doing important work in addressing these gaps and strengthening American Indian economies, by providing direct financial grants, technical assistance, and training to those communities, as well as carefully listening to their needs and advocating on their behalf.  (0:23).
