Join us in celebrating one of Native Ways Federation’s founding members, the Native American Rights Fund (NARF)! NARF is the oldest, largest nonprofit legal organization defending the rights of Native tribes, organizations, and people.
“All our nonprofits need to take flight. Native-led nonprofits stand ready to make positive change,” said Native American Rights Fund Executive Director John Echohawk (Pawnee).
Founded in 1970, NARF has helped more than 275 Tribes and tens of thousands of Native people. Some of its many focus areas include protecting and establishing the inherent sovereignty of Tribes, obtaining official Tribal recognition for numerous Native nations, helping Tribes continue their ancient traditions by protecting their rights to hunt, fish, and use the water on their lands, upholding Native religious freedom, assuring the return of remains and burial goods from museums and historical societies for proper and dignified re-burial, and protecting voting rights of Natives across the country.
The Native American Rights Fund has improved countless lives. Donate here to support their groundbreaking work!
