It's not every day you are given the opportunity to help an entire nation. The Blackfeet tribe of Glacier National Park has a very unique and thriving college that certainly needs help, but more than that, holds the key to unlocking thousands of years worth of native knowledge to lift up not only the tribe but higher education as we know it.
I am currently helping the tribe beyond crowdfunding by helping to build an advisory board to help create an endowment among other goals, sourcing corporate sponsorships to fully transform the college, and working with various storytellers and artists to expand this story further. A documentary based on all the footage we shot is also in the works.
See the entire 4-year initiative launch including interviews with Danielle's mentor, the college president and more at Blackfeet2020.com
I look forward to discussing this very unique and impactful project with you in detail.
