NCAI stressed the need for unity and cooperation among tribal governments for the protection of their treaty and sovereign rights. Since 1944, the National Congress of American Indians has been working to inform the public and Congress on the governmental rights of American Indians and Alaska Natives.

Boys & Girls Clubs in Indian CountryBoys & Girls Clubs in Indian Country Boys & Girls Clubs in Indian Country give Native youth a place they can call their own, where they can realize their potential to succeed. Currently, there are over 200 Clubs serving over 144,000 Native youth in 25 different states. The Clubs represent nearly 90 different American Indian, Native Hawaiian and Alaskan Native communities. The programming available shows the commitment to addressing the problems and issues unique to Native American lands – rural locations, high poverty rates, and shortage of trained youth professionals. These Clubs differ from traditional Clubs because they offer cultural programs that incorporate both Native traditions and lifestyles. Currently, there are several programs geared towards Native American issues. The On the T.R.A.I.L. (Together Raising Awareness for Indian Life) to Diabetes Prevention program incorporates a combination of physical, educational and nutritional activities that promote healthy lifestyles. MethSMART, an extension of SMART Moves, focuses on the growing threat of methamphetamine abuse. The National Native American Mentoring Program specifically addresses the issue of Native American children whose parent(s) are incarcerated in tribal, state or federal prisons. Boys & Girls Clubs in Indian Country is a proud partner of Reconnecting the Circle. Website:
