Hopa Mountain is totally community oriented organization offering a wide array of services. I particularly appreciate the work being done to strengthen Native non-profit organizations, the one entity we need more of Indian Country. Hopa Mountain makes free training available to anyone who would like to participate via a number of webinars. Hopa has developed a great social media outreach campaign to keep the Native community up to date on Hopa activities. In addition, Hopa Mountain has several strong programs geared towards developing indigenous scientists. For example, Hopa is bringing a well known professor of environmental and forest biology, Dr. Robin Kimmerer, to the University of Montana in late February 2012. Kimmerer, director of the Center for Native Peoples and the Environment, will present to a UM campus-wide audience. She will also work with Native students and discuss indigenous models in science application. What I write represents just a sliver of the great work being done at Hopa. When asked to join the Hopa Mountain board of directors in 2012-- I said, yes. I knew I would be working with a great team.

Hopa Mountain is an agent of change in the rural and American Indian communities in Montana, Wyoming, and North Dakota. Its programs are carefully crafted to promote the well being of these communities. Using a bottom-up approach, in which people's voices take precedent, Hopa Mountain implements programs focusing on: the development of toddlers' early literacy (Story Makers), middle school students (Native Science Field Centers), high school students (Indigenous Scholars of Promise), American Indian college students with interest in STEM areas (Native Science Fellows), promotes future leaders with interest in developing Native non-profit organizations (Strengthening the Circle), and offers many community leadership programs and support to emerging non-profits organizations. Hopa's work is inspirational and vital to achieve a better tomorrow.
