Using theater to disrupt injustice, model equity, and create community, Mixed Blood Theatre has invited the global village into its audience and onto its stage for its unique brand of challenging, inclusive, and predictably unpredictable theatre since 1976. Winner of numerous awards for its human rights and artistic accomplishments, Mixed Blood pays positive attention to differences and champions’ access. Located in the Cedar Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis since its inception, Mixed Blood aspires to be a point of assembly for residents and organizations of the most diverse zip code between Chicago and the West Coast.
The organization has recently arrived at a momentous time in its history, as it announced that Mark Valdez will assume executive and creative leadership as the Artistic Director in June 2022. He will follow Jack Reuler, who is the Founder & Artistic Director and will hand-off the leadership reigns after 46 seasons of service.
Using theatre to disrupt injustices, advance equity, and build community, Mixed Blood inspires the global village to create ripple effects of social change.
The Development Associate (DA) will report to, and partner closely with, the organization’s Development Director. The Development Associate will aid the Development Director in constructing and monitoring the overall development pipeline, which supports attainment of annual and strategic fundraising goals. A main area of accountability for the Development Associate will center on designing, executing, and evaluating a tiered approach to optimizing individual donor and member contributions. The work will be executed in collaboration with the Development Director, with material input and guidance from the Artistic Director and Managing Director.
The ability to communicate in a clear, compelling, and timely manner is central to this role. Additionally, the breadth of communications that the Development Associate will oversee will also require the ability to partner with contract grant writers and marketing firm personnel. Partnering with external resource support will require the Development Associate to outline a clear scope of work, messaging priorities, and timelines that align with overarching direction provided by the Development Director. The Development Associate will also have some responsibilities for conducting grant prospecting, proposal construction, and grant evaluation. This role will help increase the overall development capacity within the organization.

Launched in 2012 and based on the TEDTalks model, EDTalks raises public awareness of critical topics and strengthens community engagement and advocacy with and on behalf of our young people.
Each EDTalks event features two presentations and concludes with Q & A, ensuring that our speakers and audiences have opportunities for conversation and deeper dives into the evening’s topics. After hosting virtually all season, we are so excited to gather (physically, together) for this in-person event at Urban Growler in St Paul!
Talk 1: No Education Solutions Without Us
Public education is highly intersectional, but the communities most impacted by educational challenges are often not consulted or included in the solutions. Nevada Littlewolf (she/her), an Anishinaabe woman of the Leech Lake Nation, is the executive director of Elevating Education Minnesota, where she works to shine a light on Minnesota’s worst-in-nation educational disparities and work toward solutions. In her EDTalks, she will bring her cultural lens and long-time experience as a community leader to demonstrate what it means to be engaged and organized in systems change, policy development and leadership.
Over the past 25 years, Nevada Littlewolf (she/her) has built power with communities in Minnesota and across the country. A citizen of the Leech Lake Nation, Nevada is the founder of Rural American Indigenous Leadership and Seven Teachings LLC, and currently leads Elevating Education Minnesota. She is board chair for the Women’s Foundation of Minnesota, has served as a member of the Virginia (Minnesota) city council and was a 2016 Bush Fellow. Nevada has also worked with the Northland Foundation, ClearWay Minnesota, Oldenburg Arts and Cultural Community and the Minnesota Urban Debate League.
Talk 2: Uncovering Indigenous Models of Leadership
In 2007, Dr. Jon Peterson began the long and long-awaited journey back to his homeland of Samoa to reconnect with his roots, his homeland, his family and himself. Through this process, he discovered what it means to both love and live leadership, both as an educator and as a human, and developed a theoretical model for Indigenous Leadership that can be applied to work in education and beyond. In his EDTalk, Dr. Peterson will discuss his life’s work, “The Alofa Movement” (the Love Movement) and address the critical importance of honoring our ancestry and our roots as educators and leaders in these challenging times.
Susuga Leiataua Dr. Robert Jon Peterson (he/him) is the founder and president of TE2 Consulting, LLC, which provides consulting and cultural competency training for education clients and supports BIPOC leaders in growing their businesses. His 20+ years of educational experience as a teacher and administrator inform his practice as an Indigenous leader in the public, non-profit and private sectors. Dr. Peterson is also a published author, recording artist and lecturer at numerous colleges and conferences throughout the U.S. and the Pacific region. He carries the Paramount Matai, or chiefly, title of “Leiataua” from his native homeland of Samoa.
