Wayne Ducheneaux

Executive Director
Native Governance Center

Wayne is a former elected Tribal leader who’s committed to strengthening Tribal sovereignty and Indigenous leadership. He enjoys guiding Native Governance Center’s work, building relationships across sectors, and envisioning transformative futures for Native nations. Wayne values integrity, humility, and good conversations. He brings a deep and real-life understanding of Native nations’ needs, opportunities, and challenges to his work, thanks to his previous experience serving in a variety of roles for the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe. Native people know best what they need to thrive, and Wayne dedicates every day to helping Native nations acquire skills, training, and resources to support their citizens. Wayne lives by words of wisdom from community organizer Malcolm Chapman: “No one of us is smarter than all of us.”
