Decolonized Organizational Structure

"Why will rebuilding our existing Western hierarchical framework into a decolonized framework help our organization?"

"How can the medicine wheel, a primary teaching tool for the Anishinaabe that symbolizes life, be used as a tool to help decolonize our organizational framework?"

These were the questions that the NMU Native American Student Association (NASA) asked when we realized that the Western hierarchical framework was not working for our organization. We knew that we must adopt a decolonized framework in order to revitalize traditions and restore balance and harmony with our relations and the world around us.
