Spirit of the Sun- Resource Development
Spirit of the Sun’s mission is to work in partnership with Native American communities in urban areas and on reservations to boost the resilience of Native people, especially youth and young adults. Our vision is that the Native youth of today become the next generation of Native leaders, entrepreneurs, and skilled professionals who will help guide their communities toward wellness, prosperity, and cultural revitalization. It is our goal to grow our programming in the Denver metro area. We would like to become so good at what we do that we could then support other organizations through guidance and consultations, always in the interest of serving the Native American and Indigenous populations.
