Welcome to NCAI
The National Congress of American Indians, founded in 1944, is the oldest, largest and most representative American Indian and Alaska Native organization serving the broad interests of tribal governments and communities.
The NCAI PRC supports Indian Country in shaping its own future as the leading center for tribally driven policy research.
The Tribal Supreme Court Project—a collaboration between NCAI and the Native American Rights Fund— monitors litigation in which Native people have a significant stake and coordinates strategy among a network of over 250 tribal leaders, attorneys, and law professors.
Established in 2009, the Partnership for Tribal Governance creates, coordinates, and makes accessible the knowledge, tools, and resources that tribal nations and leaders need in order to strengthen their governance systems and more effectively exercise their sovereignty.
President Obama declared his commitment to fulfilling the consultation requirements of Executive Order 13175, NCAI supports tribes in this process with resources.
