Established in 2011, Western Native Voice (WNV) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization working to increase Native American participation and engagement in voting and self-determination. We work to nurture and empower new native leaders and impact policies affecting Native Americans through community organizing, education, leadership and advocacy. We are engaged on all seven Montana Indian reservations and also engaged in major Montana urban centers because approximately half of Montana’s native population lives off reservation.
Our Purpose: We inspire Native leadership so our communities flourish.
Our Mission: To foster positive social change in our communities through leadership development, education, engagement, and public policy advocacy.
Our Vision: Engaging Native Americans to building political and personal power to address local community challenges. We support and encourage Native community members to step up and be a voice for their families and communities through the civic engagement process and public policies that affect their lives and well-being. We strive for a world absent of discrimination and inequality, where every human has equal access to safety and success.
