About Us

 

Chartered in 1974 in partnership with the American Indian Historical Society and its award-winning publication, Wassaja, NAM interfaces with corporate, educational and government sectors to support diversity, equity and inclusion commitments. Programs include: media and advertising outreach, fostering cultural awareness, promoting career and supplier diversity opportunities, and providing information resources and social services through Native America Today’s Community Resource Section.

In 2016, Native American Media launched the popular news magazine and public service website Native America Today, and created the Heritage Month Awareness Initiative (HMAI), a program where employers circulate information about Native American Heritage Month to workforces and invite Native speakers (or performers) to facilitate cultural awareness presentations.

If funding permits, NAM will be co-producing a 20-25-minute documentary film tentatively titled, “Native America – Yesterday and Today.” The piece will represent a creative collaboration between historians, educators and award-winning filmmakers and provide an accurate depiction of the history of Native peoples and the community’s contributions to America. The unique and timely educational program will be freely distributed to schools, and holds the potential of impacting tens of millions of people.

NAM has garnered the appreciation of leadership and student groups throughout Indian Country, as well proactive corporate citizens, government agencies and educational institutions who desire to reach out to the community. We pride ourselves on our ability to serve, regardless of tribal affiliation or economic status.
