Donate to NCAI today and celebrate our 70th Anniversary of advancing tribal sovereignty, securing Native rights, & educating the public.
In 1944, tribal nations faced the threat of termination and Native civil rights were under assault. In response, the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) was founded to protect tribes and the rights of all Native American people. On the final day of NCAI's first National Convention, November 18, 1944, tribal leaders and citizens set forward a historic agenda to protect tribal sovereignty, secure Native rights, and educate the general public.
Today because of NCAI and so many others, tribal nations and Native people have made significant progress to advance the rights our ancestors fought so hard to preserve. However, while we have made great strides, the rights of tribal citizens and tribal sovereignty continues to come under attack. NCAI members continue to take action on the critical priorities of Indian Country - from protecting treaty rights to human rights, cultural preservation to economic development, from creating opportunity for Native youth to honoring the service of military Veterans, and much more.
As NCAI celebrates this incredible milestone of 70 years as a leader in advocating for the rights of all Native peoples, we remain committed to carrying on the important work of building a strong future for Indian Country.
Join us as we continue this work another seven generations.
