Reflective Courage

We’re not afraid to be bold and take risks in pursuit of our vision. At the same time, we carefully weigh every decision, continuously reflecting on our program and ourselves, to ensure that we are on the right path towards our vision. 


Every decision we make, from our five-year plan to the details of the day-to-day, aligns to our vision of a tribal nation free from suicide. If we can’t draw a direct line between our policies and our actions to our visions, then we may need to revisit our policies and actions

Asset-Based Thinking

We believe the best in one another and in our partnering organizations, knowing that we are all in pursuit of the same vision. When we are confused or concerned by another coworker’s words or actions, we seek to understand through asking questions and maintaining open lines of communication.


We envision a tribal nation free from suicide and suicide ideation.

Mission Statement
