OUR MISSION STATEMENT
The Organization for Indigenous Autonomy is a non-profit organization that promotes and facilitates efforts to increase sovereignty for Native Americans, Freedmen, Latino/Hispanics, and Pacific Islanders (collectively referred to as Indigenous).
We collaborate with Indigenous movements to help them network, create and sustain sovereignty. We also aim to establish contact with non-Indigenous social movements. Our primary programs include auditing areas' care of Native Americans, bringing communities together, and aiding movements with the revitalization of traditional institutions.
Since we are a Chapter-based organization, Chapter Members decide the bulk of our activities. What are you waiting for? Join the OIA today!
WHAT WE DO
The vast majority of our work is dedicated to assisting Indigenous peoples. We want to build a network of Indigenous advocates and leaders that will help, defend, and protect Indigenous sovereignty. We also collaborate with non-Indigenous-led campaigns to help them resolve the challenges Indigenous peoples face within their own borders. We also take part in charitable efforts.
Our group collaborates with non-Indigenous political movements. We make certain that such campaigns work to protect our people's interests. We will help solve injustices in a given region by auditing the community. Any non-Indigenous lead organizations have the right to order a free audit.
The Organization for Indigenous Autonomy is involved in a variety of advocacy campaigns. Though networking movements is an important part of our job, we also send speakers and activists to educate non-Indigenous peoples about our struggles. Our community is entirely member-led, which ensures that our volunteers determine our projects.
The Organization for Indigenous Autonomy believes that charitable contributions are important. Our membership is in charge of deciding which functions will be held. Toy, food, and technology drives, as well as other types of community outreach, are popular.
