The National Indian Council on Aging (NICOA) is happy to introduce our annual magazine, dedicated to showcasing some of the incredible work we do. As a nonprofit organization founded in 1976 by visionary members of the National Tribal Chairmen’s Association, NICOA has been a steadfast advocate for the needs of aging American Indian and Alaska Native elders.
Within these pages, you will discover a wealth of knowledge and insights that will empower and uplift our Native elder community. We strive to create a space that celebrates the wisdom, strength, and resilience of our elders, while addressing the challenges they face and advocating for meaningful solutions.
We invite you to embark on this journey with us as we delve into the stories of remarkable individuals whose lives have been touched by NICOA. Together, we will uncover the transformative power of community support, the importance of long-term care, and educational resources to advocate for the rights and well-being of our Native elders.
We hope that this magazine serves as a source of knowledge, inspiration, and unity, as we work towards a future where every Native elder can thrive and be honored for their invaluable contributions to society.
