Make Donations to NACB

The Native American Community Board (NACB) works to protect the health and human rights of Indigenous Peoples pertinent to our communities through cultural preservation, education, coalition building, community organizing, reproductive justice, environmental justice, and natural resource protection while working toward safe communities for women and children at the local, national, and international level.

A few years ago the NACB was funded to start an Internet radio streaming program. The station broadcasts on the Internet only and can be heard 7 days a week. Called Dakota Talk Radio, the station features special programs that include interviews from around Indian Country, National Native News, Dakota Language Lessons, Violence Against Women Prevention Programming, and Native Youth Programming, along with a lot of Native music.

GOOD NEWS!!!!!!!
Last year we were able to get an FM radio station permit from the FCC. We need to raise $350,000 in order to get our station up and on the FM airways. We have no other radio station that is local other then our Internet streaming program and not everyone has a computer on the Rez, which limits who can hear our programming. The good news is that everyone has some kind of a radio on the Rez and could tune in if we had our FM Station on the air. Will you help us to raise those funds needed to get us up and on the FM airways?

Make a donation to the NACB for our FM Radio Station.

History

In 1985, a group of Native Americans living on or near the Yankton Sioux Reservation in South Dakota formed the Native American Community Board (NACB) to address health, education, land and water rights, and economic development issues pertinent to Native American people. In 1986, the Native American Community Board was incorporated under the laws of South Dakota as a non-profit tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization.

The first NACB project developed was Women and Children in Alcohol, a program focusing on raising awareness of fetal alcohol syndrome. This program defined the direction of the organization's subsequent health work. In February of 1988, the NACB opened the Native American Women's Health Education Resource Center, the first resource center located on a reservation in the US.

In October of 1991, after a long legal battle, the Domestic Violence Program of the Resource Center opened a shelter for battered women a few blocks away from the Resource Center. As a modern, spacious, four-bedroom home, the Women's Lodge is able to provide women and their children with a safe place to escape domestic violence and sexual assault.

Over the years the Resource Center has expanded to include many programs that benefit people locally, nationally, and internationally. Some past and current examples are the Domestic Violence Program, AIDS Prevention Program, Youth Services--which include the Child Development Program and the Youth Wellness Program--Adult Learning Program, Environmental Awareness and Action Project, Cancer Prevention, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Awareness Program, Clearinghouse of Educational Materials, Food Pantry, Wicozanni Wowapi Newsletter, Diabetic Nutrition Program, Scholarships for Native American Women, Reproductive Health and Rights, "Green Thumb" Project, and Community Health Fairs.


The Native American Community Board (NACB) was incorporated as a non-profit (501)(c)(3) organization in 1985 by a concerned and well-informed group of Native Americans living on or near the Yankton Sioux Indian Reservation in South Dakota.

The Native American Women’s Health Education Resource Center (NAWHERC)--which provides direct services to Native women and families in South Dakota and advocates for Native women at the community, national, and international levels to protect our reproductive health and rights--is a project of the NACB (the NACB is the governing board). NAWHERC’s activities range from community education to preserve our culture, campaigns to end violence against Indigenous women, coalition building to fight for our reproductive justice, and environmental justice.

Since its founding in 1988, NAWHERC has become the leading pathfinder in the country in addressing Indigenous women’s reproductive health and justice issues while working to preserve and protect our culture. NACB and NAWHERC serve reservation-based Indigenous women at the local, national, and international levels.
