National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition
About the Company
The National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition (NABS) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, incorporated in June 2012 under the laws of the Navajo Nation. Our VISION is “Indigenous cultural sovereignty” and our MISSION is “To lead in the pursuit of understanding and addressing the ongoing trauma created by the US Indian Boarding School policy.” NABS as an organization was conceptualized at a grassroots level during a national symposium in 2011 which included leaders of the Canadian Truth and Reconciliation Commission and boarding school survivors and descendants across the U.S. The Native American Rights Fund was our fiscal sponsor from 2012-2015. In 2019, we completed a 10-year strategic plan for 2020-2030. Currently, our programs are focused on education, advocacy, and healing. We hold the only national conference on boarding school healing in the country. With a staff of five going on seven and a board that is 100% Native American, the Coalition membership is comprised of over 200 Native and non-Native individuals, Tribes, and Native and non-Native organizations committed to boarding school healing.
