Hide Profile

The Association on American Indian Affairs is a citizens' organization committed to defending the rights and promoting the welfare of Native Americans. The AAIA, initially incorporated as the Eastern Association of Indian Affairs, was founded by non-Indians in New York in 1922. In 1937, the AAIA, then known as the National Association on Indian Affairs, merged with the American Indian Defense Association. It adopted its current name in 1946, and in 1995, now under Indian management, moved to Sisseton, South Dakota.
