Echo Hawk Consulting advises clients on philanthropic strategies, narrative change, research, strategic partnerships and policy change within Indian Country.

Echo Hawk Consulting recently co-led Reclaiming Native Truth: A Project to Dispel America’s Myths and Misconceptions, a 2-year narrative change initiative.  The project conducted unprecedented public opinion and influencer research, message testing and multi-sector outreach and organizing in order to inform the development of narrative and culture strategies to tackle misconceptions, stereotypes, and the invisibility of Native Peoples within popular culture, institutions and society. Ultimately, the project will drive a multi-year campaign that will catalyze a shift in public perceptions and discourse with strategic audiences regarding Native Americans that can support social justice and catalyze lasting policy and culture change.
