NNABSHC is to lead in the pursuit of understanding and addressing the ongoing trauma created by the U.S. Indian Boarding School policy.

We were formed after a national symposium in 2011. Leaders from the U.S. and Canada came together to discuss the Canadian Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the need for such a process in the U.S.

NABS was created to develop and implement a national strategy that increases public awareness and cultivates healing for the profound trauma experienced by individuals, families, communities, American Indian and Alaska Native Nations resulting from the U.S. adoption and implementation of the Boarding School Policy of 1869.

NABS was fiscally sponsored by the Native American Rights Fund (NARF) until it became financially independent in 2015.
