National Congress of American Indians

The National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) was founded in 1944 and is the oldest and largest national Indian organization. NCAI serves a diverse network of nations with a combined citizenry of comprising three quarters of the American Indian and Alaska Native national population. The NCAI is organized as a representative congress of consensus on national priority issues. Our mission is to advocate on behalf of the unified interests of tribal governments and to promote a better understanding among the public about Indian and Native governments, people, and, rights. This Web Site is a part of NCAI’s outreach efforts to both the native people and the general public.
