Native American issues are gaining more national attention as cities across the country recognize Indigenous Peoples Day and celebrate Native American traditions, culture and art.
Many Native American Elders are at risk in their own homes, every single day. Winter is no exception… and poverty brings its own kind of chill.
This National Preparedness Month, itâ€™s reassuring to know weâ€™re implementing a new emergency preparedness model in Indian Country and empowering the tribes to respond locally at a moment’s notice when disaster strikes.
Labor Day: We hope employers will consider hiring Native Americans to foster a new generation of American labor and build a brighter future for all Americans.
This year, World Water Day focuses on “leaving no one behindâ€ without a reliable water source and water as a basic human right for all.

While there are many reasons to give back to Native peoples, here are three important ones. I join PWNA in encouraging you to remember Native Americans in your holiday giving this year.
We filled 800 stockings, but this is only a fraction of the thousands of gift bags and stockings PWNA provides annually to children and Elders. In fact, in 2016 PWNA provided holiday stockings for 11,730 Elders and nearly 27,500 children in reservation communities.
As a first responder for the reservations, PWNA meets the unexpected year-round. PWNA relies on individual donors as well as bulk donations of in-kind products to provide emergency relief and other emergency supplies and services in need by the tribes.
PWNAâ€™s staff, Board of Directors and partners are aligned around a mission that respects the self-determined goals and rights of tribes, as we listen and learn about the solutions that are working in their communities.
