Giving the Indigenous Way
Giving is not seen as transactional, obligatory, or as needing immediate or direct reciprocation.
Giving is a shared community value that creates kinship and relationship.
By giving the Indigenous way, we are bound to take care of one another and the Earth,
and are responsible for all things we are dependent upon.
It is a Sacred duty to care for one another and our shared world. It is an honor to receive and equally an honor to give.
We strengthen our relationships by giving the Indigenous way.
As a non-profit membership organization, the Association on American Indian Affairs
relies on the compassion and support of like-minded people who are committed to Indigenous rights and shared values.
Give Indigenously and your gift will support our shared values where diverse Native cultures and values are Lived, Protected and Respected.
