OUR MISSION STATEMENT
The Organization for Indigenous Autonomy is a non-501(c) non-profit organization that promotes and facilitates efforts to support sovereignty for Native Americans (Federal, State, and Unrecognized Tribes), First Nations, Métis, Inuit, Detribalized Natives (often referred to as Mestizo or Latino / Hispanic with Indigenous ancestry), Indigena, Freedmen, and Pacific Islanders (collectively referred to as Indigenous).
The OIA's main mission is to promote the feasibility of Indigenous state(s) that are free from colonial rule. We do this through a variety of measures as described in the Indigenous Autonomist's Guide to Land Back. This guide details operations, goals, and organization needed to secure a non-colonial future for our people. Further, the OIA directly works with other Indigenous-led sovereignty groups throughout Occupied Turtle Island and abroad.
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 OIA's mission is that of developing sovereign Indigenous communities.
One of the OIA's goals is independence from colonial support services. Our committees aim to create and maintain resources for those who face a variety of obstacles. The OIA's main resource is the Turtle Island Citizen's Response Alert. TICRA is available to all Indigenous (see above description) who submit a report through the OIA's Incident Report page.
The OIA coordinates team building and strategic exercises throughout Turtle Island. The purpose of these events is to maintain Indigenous physical health, reconnect Natives to nature and develop relationships amongst OIA members. These events are restricted to OIA members and select external organizations.
The OIA believes in community organization at all levels. Our chapters have been involved in dozens of clothing drives, area cleanups, toy collections, and food banks. Apart from the chapter-specific responses, our international organization has led multiple outreach events. These include genealogical research services, environmental action, and various speaking engagements.
“Upon suffering beyond suffering, the Red Nation shall rise again, and it shall be a blessing for a sick world. A world filled with broken promises, selfishness, and separations. A world longing for light again; I see a time of Seven Generations when all the colors of mankind will gather under the Sacred Tree of Life and the whole earth will become One Circle again.”
