Established in 1973, the American Indian Heritage Foundation recognizes that Indian people have to walk in two worlds. Therefore, the foundation seeks to provide services to Indian people nationwide, while encouraging Indian people to aspire to excellence in their own lives. It also seeks to build bridges of understanding and friendship between Indian and non-Indian people.
The foundation’s website—Indians.org—furthers the organization’s mission by providing information on special events, cultural sharing opportunities and positive and proper representations of contemporary Indian culture as well as preservation of the old and treasured ways of life.
Most visitors to Indians.org seek to learn more about the American Indian through website’s “Resource Directory.” That directory provides data as varied as information on authentic, hand crafted American Indian jewelry from the Hopi, Zuni, Navajo and other Southwest tribes; and a tribal directory; as well as information on the Miss Indian USA Scholarship and the Student Eagle Awards programs. Those are just a few of the resources available at the website with a job bank for native people in the works.
For seeking to provide Indian people with an online resource that helps them achieve a deeper pride in their heritage, Indians.org is Government Video’s Website of the Week.
