The template is not as needed as the design of a specific document - it is a community engagement guidance document that focuses particularly on engaging indigenous community members. However, depending on the design created, we might like to use it as a template for other similar documents!
Our organization has made great headway in engaging a diverse community, particularly the indigenous Dakota community. A major local foundation has asked that we provide guidance for other organizations that strive for such engagement results. This document shares our experience and recommendations. As a highly visible document, we care deeply that it appears professional and as a reflection of our organization.
