About US

about us
1
The National Native American Hall of Fame will serve as a unique resource for identifying and honoring these contemporary pathmakers, new heroes and significant contributors to American society.
The major focus of the Hall of Fame will be from the Civil War period up until present day.  This time frame was chosen because the Civil War was a milestone event in Native American history in a unique, and “modern” sense, because Natives fought on both sides of that national conflict. This phenomenon was happening at the same time that Geronimo and the Apaches, Quanah Parker and the Comanches and many Plains and western tribes were fighting against U.S. forces in the West.
OUR THOUGHTS
1
While there are various resources and facilities for learning about Native Americans from the “old times,” it is difficult to find an accurate and comprehensive source to learn about more contemporary Native Americans. America and its Native American people need a place to honor and commemorate the significant contributions and achievements of more recent historical and contemporary Native Americans. Many Native Americans have accomplished “firsts,” others have represented our country, others have fought of it, and many more have become well-known in their fields. However, the majority of Americans, and even most Native Americans, are not aware of the vast array of accomplishments by Native Americans in modern times.
OUR MISSION
1
To Recognize and honor the inspirational achievements of Native Americans in contemporary history.
OUR VISION
1

To establish The National Native American Hall of Fame as a world class international tourist/visitor destination attraction.  It will also offer a large traveling exhibit that will be available to schools, colleges, libraries, tribal museums, visitor centers, events, powwows and conferences.

We believe that through experiential education and interactive exposures, we can prevent negative stereotyping and provide inspiration for our young people.

OUR PURPOSE

Honoring Our Pathmakers

The National Native American Hall of Fame will serve as a unique resource for identifying and honoring these contemporary pathmakers, new heroes and significant contributors to American society.

 

The major focus of the Hall of Fame will be from the Civil War period up until present day.  This time frame was chosen because the Civil War was a milestone event in Native American history in a unique, and “modern” sense, because Natives fought on both sides of that national conflict. This phenomenon was happening at the same time that Geronimo and the Apaches, Quanah Parker and the Comanches and many Plains and western tribes were fighting against U.S. forces in the West.

 

The National Native American Hall of Fame will help people understand how Native Americans overcame the hopelessness of early reservations, and the trauma of Indian boarding schools, poverty, discrimination, racism and the cultural divide to not only adapt, but to achieve greatness in every field, profession and industry.
