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.
NCAI serves to secure for ourselves and our descendants the rights and benefits to which we are entitled; to enlighten the public toward the better understanding of the Indian people; to preserve rights under Indian treaties or agreements with the United States; and to promote the common welfare of the American Indians and Alaska Natives.
CONTEXT FOR USE
To gather and share tribal perspectives and strategies for dealing with climate change. Although, indigenous people contribute the least to the cause of climate change, they are at the greatest risk to suffer the most.
