About Us


Native Americans living on the rural and remote reservations of the Southwest struggle daily with isolation, limited employment opportunities, and a harsh and resource-poor environment. Poverty is all too common, and weighs most heavily on those most fragile especially Elders and their multi-generational extended families. The Council of Indian Nations provides program services that benefit Native Americans throughout the desert southwest.


Success Stories

Adella happily talked about Christmas. Giving and giving thanks was central to her holiday season. She recalled Christmas as being mostly a happy time, including lighting the tree and sharing a meal as a family.
