Chartered in 1974 in partnership with the American Indian Historical Society, Native American Media ( NAM ) has grown to be one of the largest and most prestigious Native American opportunity efforts. The NAM benefits Native American community in a multitude of ways: communications, employment, business enterprise development, cultural awareness and social service referrals. We pride ourselves on our solid reputation and the ability to serve the needs of the community-at-large, regardless of tribal affiliation or economic status. Through 34 years of service, NAM has garnered the appreciation and respect of Indian Country, as well as proactive corporations, government agencies and educational institutions. Our programs have also been supported by the major media, including a page one story in The Wall Street Journal and a feature on the ABC Television Network. Native American Media's overall goal is to improve the socio-economic status of Native American community, by way of creating strategic alliances with employers, and others, who are committed to minority outreach and diversity initiatives. Statistically, Native American people represent the lowest socio-economic status of any minority group. Although there has been significant progress in the last twenty-five years, the one group of Americans that represent the deepest roots in this country, still suffers in areas such as employment, education, housing, communications and business enterprise development.
