We help Native youth develop a lifelong love for learning

There are often multiple obstacles to school-based learning for Native youth, including access, family resources, transportation, and historical trauma. This is why, as a family of tribally owned companies, we are passionate about applying our experience and expertise alongside Native Nations, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and the Bureau of Indian Education. We work to make a difference and help author a new story.


Bodwé team experience includes campus planning and site development, student dorms and staff housing, indoor and outdoor learning spaces, and fields and facilities for athletics as well as the holistic benefits of play.

Native Focus

We are working across Indian Country through our relationship with the BIA, which has expanded from facility condition assessment projects to design and construction of new campus plans to modernizing the federal design standards.


Our team includes key leaders who have spent much of their careers working with schools. For them and us all, transforming education for current and future generations of native students brings honor and joy.
