A MATRIFOCAL MISSION
The North American Indigenous Center of New York (NAIC-NY) is a Native-women-led and centered nonprofit organization committed to Indigenous empowerment through cultural continuance, intersectional equity, and advancement of economic justice for Native nations, communities, and peoples living in and beyond the boundaries of New York City, New York State, and the Northeast.
Through intersectional Indigenous cultural, social, arts, educational, environmental, economic, health, and wellness programming, the North American Indigenous Center of New York (NAIC-NY) honors the past living legacy of our peoples, and meets the present multiple needs of our communities, so we can build together vibrant, self-determining, sovereign futures.
Continual Native migration between urban centers and reservations demonstrates the deep interrelatedness of all Native peoples wherever we live our contemporary lives. From this reality emerges the sovereign recognition that all our issues and concerns as Native peoples are truly shared, and our survivals interwoven.
