At the request of the Zuni Tribal Council, The Keshi Foundation (TKF) participated in a series of meetings in 2018 to learn what the Zuni Community considered to be effective ways to expand economic opportunity in the Zuni Pueblo.
These sessions brought together a wide range of Zuni stakeholders. Participants included representatives of the Pueblo government, artists, and other stakeholders. The session included both analytical exploration of needs and potential solutions; and more emotional exploration of how different stakeholders might experience potential future developments.
The highly constructive meetings led to a working collaborative association with TKF and the A:shiwi College and Career Readiness Center (ACCRC).
The meetings identified viable solutions for economic opportunity and pathways to follow and TKF formulated a two path approach with both long-term and short-term approaches. This process also led to a working collaborative association between TKF and the A:shiwi College and Career Readiness Center (ACCRC).
