“The Native American Indian Association of Tennessee, Incorporated (NAIA) is a service agency for Indians of Tennessee. It has been chartered as a tax-exempt non-profit corporation since October 1983, under provisions of section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code to improve the quality of life for Indians in Tennessee. NAIA has helped the Indian people in its service area to achieve the following goals:

  1. Improve the services in education and decrease illiteracy.
  2. Expand job opportunities and promote better employment.
  3. Increase knowledge and awareness of Indian culture.
  4. Promote Indian unity and organization.
  5. Improve services for daycare, housing, health, social services, and nutrition for low-income Indian people.

NAIA is the only statewide non-profit organization with an all-Indian Board of Directors elected by the membership. NAIA represents the concerns of the more than 10,000 Native American Indian residents of Tennessee. NAIA is a service organization based on the principles of self-determination and self-reliance.”–From the webiste.
