The National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) and the California tribes will host the organization’s 69th Annual Convention & Marketplace in Sacramento, California this October. The national meeting will serve as the beginning of a yearlong celebration of the organization’s 70 years of work since it was founded in 1944. This year’s Annual Convention will also host a Constitutional review.
Over the course of six days, events and celebrations will focus on the rights and sovereignty of American Indian and Alaska Native tribes. Throughout the week NCAI will convene it’s General Assembly, educational breakout sessions, and cultural celebrations, all with the purpose of engaging Indian Country in reconnecting with NCAI’s original mission, to serve as the unified voice of Indian Country and protect the rights and sovereignty of tribal nations.
