What is an NCAI Resolution?
A resolution is one of the policy mechanisms utilized by NCAI to express the consensus positions of member tribes on tribal, federal, state, and/or local legislation, litigation, or policy matters that affect the welfare and rights of American Indian and Alaska Native governments or communities.
All of NCAI’s advocacy work is guided by the resolutions process.
NCAI members establish the organization’s positions on issues that affect tribal nations and Native people through a resolutions process. NCAI resolutions are one of the policy mechanisms used to express the organizational positions on tribal, federal, state, and/or local legislation, litigation, and policy matters that affect tribal governments or communities.
The resolutions created and passed by NCAI members cover a broad range of topics and are important for providing direction to the organization and as advocacy tools with policy makers. Currently, the online searchable database houses nearly 1,000 resolutions dating back to 2001. The organization's online archives will continue to expand and reach as far back as 1944.
