NAIA represents the concerns of the more than 30,000 Native American Indian residents of Tennessee. NAIA strives to represent all Native American Indians regardless of sex or tribe. Because there are no reservations in Tennessee, there has been no state or federal recognition of the Indian population and no services directed to them.
StoryCorps Tribal Libraries is a program that provides tribal libraries and libraries that serve Native communities with the resources and training to implement our interview methods within a framework of high-quality library programming and cultural preservation. The program is made possible with generous support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
Among the billions of historical records housed at the National Archives throughout the country, researchers can find information relating to American Indians from as early as 1774 through the mid 1990s.
