Imagine what's possible through collaborative learning...

A play on the words Indigenous/Indian, and ingenious/genius, ndgenius harnesses the brilliance of Indian Country to help its members solve problems and create opportunities together, driving economic and social prosperity for ndgenius’ members and the tribal communities they belong to or serve.

Our flagship Tribal Strategic Governance Hub uses a combination of expert-guided learning, curated resources, and facilitated networking to drive member success, helping them further their personal and professional goals while strengthening tribal communities.

As we grow, we will be launching additional membership groups in areas where we see the most demand. Within these groups, whether you're a tribal leader looking to maximize Self-Determination contracting, an aspiring entrepreneur with a great idea, or a community member seeking to preserve and pass on traditional knowledge, ndgenius will work with you to set goals and provide tailored learning paths to help you reach them. This may include accountability partner pairing, group mindset coaching sessions, just-in-time learning resources, expert Q&A sessions, cohort-based courses, peer learning, problem- and project-based learning, and more.

Drawing on cutting-edge learning science and research on Indigenous learning preferences, ndgenius prioritizes real outcomes over rote learning. By actively engaging with each member and providing tailored learning paths, ndgenius propels you toward achieving your aspirations as efficiently as possible.

Inspired by the renaissance in Native Nation Building, our ultimate goal is to serve as a platform for facilitating widespread individual and structural change that leads to greater prosperity and more actively embodied tribal sovereignty in Indian Country. 

As a founding member of one of our membership groups, you’ll help shape ndgenius and lock in your introductory rate—forever. That means as long as you remain a member, your fees will never go up. Join our waitlist, and we’ll contact you for a brief interview to discuss what your goals are and how we could best help you meet them. Applicants who we believe would benefit from ndgenius will be invited to join as we launch new membership groups that meet their needs.

Our community memberships offer you the tools you need to help you reach your goals, with ongoing support from peers and experts.

Is ndgenius right  for you?

We are the best fit for individuals who have the time and motivation to dedicate to self-improvement through the platform.

Time requirements depend on your goals, and whether you decide the best paths for reaching them involve mostly bite-sized learning experiences, like job-aids, templates, and just-in-time learning, or more in-depth learning, like engaging in cohort-based learning.

Read through the following description of our ideal leaners to see if you recognize yourself or not.
Our ideal members are:
  • Open and curious lifelong learners
  • Willing to engage in the active learning and self-reflection necessary to achieve "aha" moments
  • Focused on their own personal and professional development
  • Dedicated to better serving their communities
  • Interested in mutual uplift, and willing to share their own skills and knowledge with others (note that even those who don't believe they have skills to share inevitably do)
  • Able to be respectful of differing perspectives
  • Likely to have a "servant leader" mindset and recognize the value of humility


If that doesn’t sound very much like you, we may not be the right match.

Our ideal members do not:
  • Need to have certain educational credentials
  • Need to be extroverted or outgoing
  • Have to publicly engage in learning opportunities before they've had a chance to sit back and observe
  • Need to be Native (though you should be working for the benefit of Indian Country)


Apply now, and we will set up a meeting with you to discuss your goals and answer any questions you have about ndgenius.
