“We are beginning to look more and more to our own people, communities, and history for solutions. We have begun to trust our own thinking again.” – Chief Wilma P. Mankiller, MICA Founder
The MICA Group partners with indigenous communities, governments, and foundations to build social and economic capital through innovative, culturally appropriate strategies.
Our management team brings experience and accomplishments in project management, community mobilization, educational transformation, cultural revitalization, and economic empowerment. We draw on a deep pool of experts, both indigenous and others, as needed for each project. We bring ideas, contacts, encouragement, and new frameworks along with tools and methodologies that can be leveraged for years to come. Most of all, we bring an unfailing belief in the strength and resilience of Indigenous peoples and their right to determine how best to nurture their communities.
