The Frank Harrison, Elizabeth Peratrovich, and Miguel Trujillo Native American Voting Rights Act (NAVRA) was introduced in 2021, but did not pass. We need NAVRA passed to protect Native voting rights.
In 2016, the Kellogg Foundation funded a multi-state survey of barriers that Native Americans voters face. To build on the survey, in 2017-2018, we held field hearings across the country. This work culminated in a 175-page report on the obstacles that Native voters face at every turn in the political process. In 2021, report updates were released.
Resources for tribes, communities, and individuals that want to improve voter services. Voter toolkits and state guides available!
Resources to organize and make sure that people outside of our communities do not define our borders or divide our power.
Highlights from our ongoing work to protect Native American voting rights.
The Native American Rights Fund founded the coalition in 2015 to facilitate collaboration among Coalition members and to coordinate efforts at overcoming the many barriers Native Americans face in registering to vote, casting their ballot, and having an equal voice in elections.
