Native American and Indigenous Peoples

Government and general resources concerning Native Americans and Indigenous Peoples


The federal health program for American Indians and Alaska Natives. 

ANA promotes self-sufficiency for Native Americans by providing discretionary grant funding for community based projects, and training and technical assistance to eligible tribes and native organizations.

The Tribal Health Research Office (THRO) is the central hub of coordinating Tribal health research across the NIH; gathering meaningful and timely input from Tribal communities on NIH policies, programs and activities; and creating opportunities for the next generation of American Indian/Alaskan Native (AI/AN) researchers at the NIH. The office is located in the Division of Program Coordination, Planning, and Strategic Initiatives in the Office of the Director (OD), NIH.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is the agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that leads public health efforts to advance the behavioral health of the nation. SAMHSA's mission is to reduce the impact of substance abuse and mental illness on America's communities.

NAMI is an alliance of more than 600 local affiliates who work in your community to raise awareness and provide support and education about mental health. Their webpage on Indigenous People features resources and information tailored towards American Indigenous People. 

NICWA works to support the safety, health, and spiritual strength of American Indian and Alaska Native children along the broad continuum of their lives. We support tribes in building the capacity to prevent child abuse and neglect through positive systems change at the state, federal, and tribal levels. We are the most comprehensive source of information on American Indian and Alaska Native child welfare.


The role of the Office of Public and Indian Housing is to ensure safe, decent, and affordable housing; create opportunities for residents' self-sufficiency and economic independence; and assure fiscal integrity by all program participants.

The Office of Native American Programs is working tirelessly to support all of our Tribal housing partners as we deal with the impact of COVID-19 as a Nation.
