Biographical/Historical note:
The National Tribal Chairmen's Association (NTCA) was formally created in Albuquerque July 13th, 1971. Funded in part by contracts with the Department of the Interior and in part by funds from the department of Health Education and Welfare the NTCA was composed of elected chairmen from federally recognized Indian tribes, bands and communities in the United States. The NTCA served as a voice to promote American Indian unity, observation of treaty and other rights, preservation of values, and progress in justice, social standing, education, economic well being, and political influence of all Indians of the United States. The organization no longer exists.
Provenance:
The records of the National Tribal Chairmen's Association were donated to the National Anthropological Archives in 1980 from NTCA. The records were then transferred to the National Museum of the American Indian Archive Center in 2007.
