OUR MISSION STATEMENT
The Organization for Indigenous Autonomy is a nonprofit association which supports and implements efforts by Native Americans, Latino/Hispanics, and Pacific Islanders (collectively referred to as Indigenous) in increasing sovereignty for their respective communities.
We work with Indigenous movements to help network as well as establish, and maintain autonomy. We also seek to open communication with non-Indigenous groups. Our main services involve things like auditing area's treatment of Natives, networking groups together, and assisting movements with establishments of well structured hierarchies.
We are a Chapter based organization, so the majority of our work is determined by Chapter Members. You could be a voice for change! Join the OIA today!
WHAT WE DO
Supporting Indigenous communities is an absolute majority of our business. We seek to establish a network of Indigenous activists and leaders to support, maintain, and uphold Indigenous sovereignty. We also work with non-Indigenous led campaigns so that they may better address Indigenous issues within their borders. We participate in charity events, as well.
Our organization works closely with non-Indigenous lead movements. We ensure that those movements work to secure the rights of our people. By auditing the population, we can better address injustices in a specific area. All non-Indigenous lead groups have the ability to request an audit, free of charge.
The Organization for Indigenous Autonomy is involved in a wide range of activism projects. While networking movements is a large portion of our responsibilities; we also assign speakers and advocates to teach non-Indigenous peoples about our struggles. Our organization is completely member led, meaning members decide what we are involved with.
We at the Organization for Indigenous Autonomy believe it is imperative to commit to charitable efforts. Our membership leads the way, determining what events will be hosted. Things such as toy, food, and technology drives and other forms of community outreach are common.
