The organization selected a nation cohort of tribal citizens from around the country during its April 2012 Native Philanthropy Institute in Los Angeles. Among those selected were four women from the Minneapolis-St. Paul area who work in the Native community in various positions and organizations. Leslie Apple (Oglala Lakota), Alicia Smith (Yupik), Deanna Standing Cloud (Red Lake Ojibwe) and Anna Ross (Turtle Mountain Ojibwe) were selected for the 18-month program based on their individual goals and projects to improve their community through their own leadership development in philanthropic and non-profit sectors.
