Full Circle Indigenous Planning, LLC.

A Native American-owned, research-based planning and design firm


Full Circle Indigenous Planning is a Native American-owned, research-based planning and visioning design firm serving tribal communities, economic development agencies and gaming facilities throughout Indian Country.

We help our clients complete the due diligence necessary for successful building projects through a thoughtful cultural visioning, pre-design planning and long-range master planning process—for cultural arts and landscape projects, community centers, schools, housing, libraries and gaming amenities. From small, culturally sensitive spaces in individual buildings, to large-scale casino resort projects and community master plans.

Full Circle forms effective partnerships tailored for each project, working with architects and other planning professionals to either lead or assist design efforts, protecting tribal design interests, delivering culturally respectful planning and design.

Rooted in project fiscal responsibility, culture, landscape, tradition and innovation, our practice focuses on empowering and giving a voice to Native communities as they develop important cultural and economic development projects.

Led by founder and CEO Sam Olbekson, White Earth Nation of Ojibwe, the Full Circle team is dedicated to helping communities plan and design projects from a Native perspective, with a sincere commitment to sustainability, quality and to improving the lives of tribal community members.
