After centuries of colonization and forced assimilation, contemporary Native Americans are increasingly working to reclaim their narrative and make progress based on a foundation of traditional Native values, cultures, languages and practices. Join us to hear Robert Lilligren, President and CEO of the Native American Community Development Institute (NACDI), speak about this 10-year old, asset-based community development intermediary located on Franklin Avenue in South Minneapolis. NACDI is focusing on the people-side of community development and is keeper of the community vision of the American Indian Cultural Corridor as a destination and economic engine for the local Native Community. Lilligren also serves as Metropolitan Council Member for District 7, including downtown Minneapolis.
