Association on American Indian Affairs--AAIA
In order to thrive, Native families and youth need to be healthy, have a good education, and be part of a strong and supportive community and culture.
For 94 years, AAIA has been working to promote these goals and provide the critical elements that Native American children and families need to live happy, healthy and productive lives.
AAIA takes its lead from Native American people themselves. We work in close cooperation with Native Americans and other organizations that have similar missions in determining which issues will be pursued and the amount of emphasis to be placed on each issue. The focus of AAIA's work is on areas that are vitally important but not adequately addressed by government or other organizations. AAIA is unique in that, in addition to providing assistance in the area of national policy, we also work on a grass roots level as well as being the oldest policy/advocacy Native non-profit in the country.
