Native Peoples Action (NPA), a statewide 501(c)(4) organization, gives voice to our ancestral imperative to uplift our peoples and protect our ways of life by taking a stand, working together and mobilizing action. We do this through ensuring Alaska Natives are heard in all levels of policy making, advocating for the wellness of our peoples and our ways of life, and by transforming social and governance systems.
We Take a Stand. An equitable society and governance structures will be achieved when Indigenous values and peoples are in positions of decision and policy making authority in Alaska. Systems, laws, and regulations must align with our ways of life.
We Work Together. We stand united to strengthen networks, find common ground, and advocate for the wellness of our peoples and the sustainability of our communities and ways of life.
We Mobilize Action. We aim to amplify our peoples’ power and voices to engage in and transform social and political systems.
NPA has an affiliated 501(c)3 partner, Native Peoples Action Community Fund (NPACF). These two separate but sibling organizations work hand-in-hand to realize the shared vision of protecting Alaska Native ways of life. NPACF was established to facilitate an Alaska Native statewide grassroots movement advancing the transition to a just society that provides for the continuation of our Alaska Native ways of life, and the wellbeing of Alaska Native peoples. Our operating principles include:
Be Well: Indigenous wellbeing founded on respect and understanding;
Be Grounded: Indigenous education for all;
Be Sustained: sustainable economies of place founded on respect;
Be Seen: media and messaging by Indigenous artists;
Be Heard: amplify Indigenous voices; and
Be Sacred; honor and defend Indigenous spirituality.
Native Peoples Action will be the employer of record, but the positions will be split between Native Peoples Action and Native Peoples Action Community Fund.
